Emma Twin Avatar Is A Glimpse Into The Future Of Healthcare

Dassault Systèmes aims to raise awareness of the role of virtual twins in accelerating medical research and delivering personalised care

Project lifecycle management company Dassault Systèmes has revealed Emma Twin, an avatar that’s designed to raise awareness of the key role that virtual twins have in advancing healthcare as well as innovations that are shaping the future of medicine. 

Emma Twin will use social media to share stories about how her virtual twin was created from anonymous health data and can be used to run countless tests, giving doctors and researchers a deep understanding of diseases and the effects of new and improved treatments.

Her social media posts will document her involvement in medical research and innovations such as clinical trials using Medidata solutions; the reaction of her heart to different procedures in the Living Heart project; testing CorNeat Vision’s corneal transplants; epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease studies in the Living Brain project; wearing the IASO drug administration and monitoring device; and optimizing the home for older adults.  

They will also highlight DAMAE Medical’s portable microscope for detecting skin cancer; Dynocardia’s blood pressure monitoring solution; FEops’ cardiac monitoring; LUCID Implants’ customized facial implants; and the VORTHEx radiotherapy simulation experience.  

Virtual twins 

Victoire de Margerie, vice president, corporate equity, marketing & communications at Dassault Systèmes said, “Through Emma Twin, we will share stories about the impact of virtual twins on healthcare, in an engaging, meaningful way. Our virtual twins have been used to swiftly develop COVID-19 vaccines, optimize surgical procedures, and provide patients with a greater understanding of treatment options.

“By leveraging our pioneering technology, we can draw attention to major healthcare challenges and demonstrate how the virtual world improves outcomes in real life,” Margerie added. 

Virtual twins accelerate the development of more precise and preventive healthcare solutions by enabling researchers and healthcare professionals to model, test, and treat the human body as precisely, safely, and effectively as other industries can with cars, buildings, or aeroplanes.

Emma Twin is now set to be the next chapter in Dassault Systèmes’ ‘The Only Progress is Human‘ initiative, which is dedicated to improving healthcare and the patient experience, which was launched in 2020.
