Mathematical Modelling of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can have a radical impact on someone’s quality of life. A burn injury in the neck, for example, can cause a contraction that makes it impossible for someone to lift his or her head. Complications such as hypertrophic scars and contractions can occur as the result of burn injuries. In the first-place, hypertrophic scars cause aesthetic problems. In the case of hypertrophy, the scar is thicker and more elevated than normal. The second class of complications, an excessive contraction, often causes reduced mobility of the joint of the patient.

Pushing finance to a higher level with scientific software engineers

Since the credit crisis, banks and insurers have become a lot more cautious. This can be seen from the financial models that are used: they are getting increasingly more ingenious and complex, partly due to new insights and stricter regulations. Risks of products are better assessed, more advanced investment strategies are implemented and more aspects are included in order to assess the financial market more realistically. The tendency is that more and more highly skilled engineers are hired to support this complex matter. These technical experts prove their value in finance. In this blog, we will go into this further based on a number of relevant finance projects that have been carried out at VORtech,.
