Report Scope

  • Definition of digital twin and a brief overview of major players in medical applications such as GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthineers, Dassault Systemes, Sim & Cure
  • Digital twin patent mining in medical applications, with a breakdown by field, technology, and application year

A digital twin is a digital replica of a living or non-living physical entity with an aim to establish the connection between the physical model and the corresponding virtual counterpart. Digital twin technology has been used in a broad range of applications across aerospace, manufacturing, medical, automotive, and urban planning industries.

In medical applications, it can help doctors collect data of patients such as electronic medical records, physiological information, and lifestyle habits for them to perform remote medical services, simulate specific therapies and surgery or drugs, and collect responses from patients. On top of that, it can also assist medical staff to perform simulated training.
