Lifemodeler, Inc. Now Offers Consutling Services
Company reputation has been built with LifeMOD™ human simulation software and its biomechanical engineers now provide “virtual testing.”
SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (May 19, 2008)---With the incidence of knee and hip replacements multiplying as the “boomer” generation heads towards Social Security checks, companies involved in supplying the orthopedic community have seen their business boom as well. So much so, that many are now relying more heavily on others to supplement their future product design needs.
LifeModeler, Inc., based here, has built an enviable reputation in a number of design-driven industries through the use of its LifeMOD™ human simulation software that replicates human body parts movement. With software applications that are matched to the knee, hip, and neck, the company has been the primary resource for top orthopedic industry suppliers as they develop new artificial joint replacements.
Now, according to LifeModeler’s CEO/Founder, Shawn McGuan, the company has added significantly to its business base by offering virtual testing support as well as software and full-service design development. This new consulting service lets primary suppliers of joint replacements use LifeModeler’s engineering staff to circumvent some of the lengthy and often-times expensive design research that accompanies new product development.
“The economics of the industry now demands quicker turnaround at the corporate level in order to maintain market competitiveness. The immediacy of companies’ design needs can be met rather easily through our virtual testing operations,” said McGuan.
Rather than focusing only on multiple installations of LifeModeler’s industry-leading software, McGuan’s team of biomechanical engineers is increasingly taking on the task of directly supporting other companies internal design capabilities.
“We have the capabilities to tackle a small, unique problem in the development stage and offer clear, immediate solutions that enhance efforts from a company’s internal engineering group. It’s truly a value-added proposition,” said McGuan.
He said LifeModeler, with engineering expertise collectively totaling more than 200 years, is “like having your own private army of experts.”
Besides the orthopedic community, LifeModeler has become a staple in sports equipment development, automotive-human interface, and space exploration—yes, NASA even employs supplementary engineering capability.
The company recently worked on a series of design initiatives for NASA that involves how much weight an astronaut will be capable of carrying on the surface of the moon. No small task, but one that LifeMod was able to handle.
If the business environment remains substantially static, McGuan believes the new model his company has embarked upon will be a continuing factor in its growth. And that bodes well for LifeModeler.
“Our commitment to providing complete, full-service design support through our software will not in any way be altered by broadening the scope of the jobs we’re willing to tackle,” said McGuan. “We see this new, expanded service as being complimentary to the sales and use of the LifeMOD software packages, and initial response is bearing this out,” he concluded.
The company sees as much as 15 percent of its annual revenue being derived from this broadened effort, and as McGuan said, “once they see what LifeMOD can do, it’s pretty difficult to walk away.”
