Engineering & design: “Digital Twin” of your body as a part of your health care


EXCERPT: Sometimes medical breakthroughs come from odd places. For 35 years a French software company called Dassault Systèmes has been making 3-D “digital twins” of real objects like bridges, buildings, and automobiles to test, virtually, how they will behave in the real world. Using such a digital twin, engineers can see how a bridge flexes during heat waves, how buildings sway during earthquakes, and how cars behave during head-on collisions. That allows them to identify—and perhaps fix—weaknesses, ideally before shoddy bridges, buildings, and cars have a chance to hurt anyone. But Dassault wants to take its concept of digital twins into medicine and to simulate the human body....
