Winter Edition of PTC’s Product Lifecycle Report is out and packed with interesting articles, two that caught our eye feature PTC Creo:
Researchers at the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Engineering in the medical school at the University of Tokyo are developing an artificial heart with the help of PTC software. In Japan, heart patients wait an average of 981 days for a transplant–that’s more than two and a half years. If the Tokyo group could produce a man-made device that performed just as well as the human organ, they could replace diseased hearts and return patients to good health, or, at the very least keep their circulatory systems running long enough for a donor to be found.
