Have you been in a situation where a generic treatment did not work very well for you or someone you know? Have you ever had that nagging feeling that maybe the doctor (as good as he or she may be) should really be treating YOU rather than a generalized representation of you?
Digital Orthopaedics is a startup that transforms the planning and execution of orthopedic surgeries and treatment with the ultimate goal of Personalizing Orthopedic Treatment through the innovative use of ideation, modeling and simulation. This journey accelerates the progress of various Precision Medicine Initiatives worldwide by demonstrating what can be done when good engineering and medical teams work closely together.
So instead of relying on the geometry-based, mass or generic approach, the breakthrough idea is to create personalized foot models for each patient starting from imaging and then determine via the use of realistic simulation the best possible treatment for that individual.
Digital Orthopaedics’ Clinical Decision Support System value proposition is articulated around three technological platforms:
The 3DEXPERIENCE® platform on cloud is a key enabler to the success of Digital Orthopedics, offering:
Digital Orthopaedics has put together a strong ecosystem
Convinced of the value of modeling and simulation in clinical practice the founding team of Digital Orthopaedics, Eric Halioua, Dr Thibaut Leemriise and Dr Bruno Ferré drives the adoption of these methods with their team of experts to make efficient progress. The use of simulation as part of a clinical decision making solution is very new and will require convincing the medical community of its value. The strong ecosystem that Digital Orthopaedics has put together will help address this opportunity.
Digital Orthopaedics combines engineering and 3D simulation capabilities with in-depth medical expertise provided by Dr. Bruno Ferré and Dr. Thibaut Leemrijse.

With studies estimating the annual number of deaths due to medical errors in the hundreds of thousands, the time has come to revise the way the medical profession gains knowledge and experience. Advances in 3D printing technology and virtual simulation are creating new opportunities to improve the quality of treatments and patient safety.
In the US, 1 child in 68 is born with the Autism Spectrum Disorders. Children with Autism have learning and developmental disorders, and represent a number higher than all others disabilities put together. In the US alone, over 6.4% children have special needs in terms of cognitive, motor and sensory processing skills.
The satellite market has been disrupted by the miniaturization of the technology. Lots of small satellites have been created and they aim to provide data for Earth observation, surveillance, telecommunications, smart cities, connectivity, meteorology, emergency responses, ...
Inaccurate medications kill 5 times more than road accidents in developed countries. Jus in France, they cost 10 billion euros to the public health system. Around the globe, consolidated numbers are not easily accessible but we estimate that inaccurate medications cause at least 1 million deaths and cost 1000 billion dollars to public health systems every year.
The Living Heart Project aims to advance the development of safe and effective cardiovascular products and treatments by uniting engineering, scientific, and biomedical expertise to translate cutting-edge science into improved patient care. Through simulation and the creation of validated models, the project aims to provide personalized, interventional patient care.
Two 3D experiences, ultra realistic on a scientific point of view, were created through collaborative projects with technologic and scientific partners: "Staying Alive" and "Born To Be Alive".
"Staying Alive" is a serious game that allows to learn appropriate behaviors for first aid techniques.
Long term recordings of patients is often difficult due to complexity of measurement, hospitalization cost, burden for patients or lack of availability of specialized Doctors. Yet, these long term recordings are critical for an accurate diagnosis and care plan setting, in many pathologies such as Epilepsy, Cardiovascular disease and Sleep disorders.
