About FEops:
FEops is a recognized pioneer in the field of physics-based simulations for minimally invasive cardiovascular devices and procedures. We apply this
technology from bench to bed, by offering advice to medical device companies as well as to medical specialists and physicians. Our computer simulations
have proven to provide medical device developers and manufacturers with unique insights, thereby speeding up R&D processes and supporting device
safety. Physicians, for their part, benefit from new patient-specific insights that help them work more efficiently while, most importantly, improving patient


You will first be trained in the existing simulation workflow for TAVI, and learn how to generate 3D patient models based on medical images, and to pre- and
post-process patient-specific computer simulations. This training is required to help processing incoming CT datasets of patients who will undergo TAVI.
Depending on the specific need of FEops at the time of the internship, the duration of the internship and the interests of the student, other tasks will be
added, such as:
- Perform a literature review / market analysis regarding a specific cardiovascular intervention
- Contribute to ongoing research studies that focus on validating the accuracy of the computer simulations
- Contribute to software development projects (business intelligence, computer graphics, etc.)
- Explore the feasibility of real-time computer simulations
- Etc.
