Our Approach

We believe it is easier to have simulation experts learn about a project's challenges than to have someone on every project team become a simulation expert.  By using System Insight Engineering and leveraging the computing power available in the cloud even large complex models can provide timely answers for your project.

Our Mission

System Insight Engineering's mission is to improve our client's bottom line by cutting time to market in half through projects we find socially, technically, or personally compelling.

Computational Modeling and Simulation Experts

We are a computational modeling and simulation consultancy that specializes in medical devices. We are experts in multiphysics simulations of complex systems and modeling the interaction between energy and biological tissue. Energy modalities span electrical, optical, or ultrasonic energy.  By modeling tissue response, we engineer solutions that target a specific tissue effect, whether at a targeted cutting rate or to protect critical structures from thermal damage. We are driven to fast-track high quality medical devices to market, reduce prototype iterations, and speed regulatory approval - significantly benefiting your bottom line.
