A biomedical research team from ARA will develop BioGears™, an open-source physiology engine to allow for distributed collaboration and consistent simulation across the medical training community. The BioGears™ physiology engine will model human response to trauma and treatment and will include physiologically accurate models for multiple systems, including cardiovascular, respiratory, renal and endocrine.
BioGears™ is based on a common data model that will create standard inputs and outputs, making it easy to extend existing and add new physiology models. BioGears™ will provide a set of application programming interfaces (APIs) for real-time retrieval of accurate physiology state. This allows for easy integration with immersive medical education software built on popular game engines such as the award-winning Unreal® Engine technology and Unity® game engine. BioGears™ will be a GCC compliant, C++ library.
The main goals for BioGears™ are:
• Create a comprehensive, extensible human physiology engine that will drive medical training technologies.
• Create a publicly available physiology research platform that enables accurate and consistent simulated physiology across training applications.
• Lower the barrier to create medical training content.
• Engage the community to develop and extend physiology models.
• Meet the training needs of the military.
• Expand the body of knowledge about the use of simulated physiology for medical education.
“Our team is thrilled to have been selected by TATRC. This project is one of great importance to the medical simulation community and the advancement of immersive medical training technologies. We look forward to creating the most comprehensive, open source mathematical model of human physiology available,” said
ARA’s biomedical modeling and simulation research group has a proven track record of creating innovative, physiologically accurate mathematical models that drive immersive, game-based medical training technologies.
