Smart Healthcare with Big Data at HPC centre HLRS in Germany


30 Jun 2015 Stutgart - Jane Williams at an Intel blog looks at High-Performance Computing for Healthcare at HLRS in Stuttgart. Williams writes: "For three years, this research team has been running simulations of the types of realistic forces that the thigh bone undergoes on a daily basis for different body types and at a variety of activity levels to try and inform doctors what is needed to create much better implants for patients with severe fractures or hip deterioration. Successful implants can make a significant impact on the wearer’s quality of life, so the lighter and more durable they are the better."
