About

Company history

The company was founded more than twenty years ago based on the insight that knowledge in medicine can benefit from the use of simulation models based on physiological and pharmacological knowledge combined with relevant mathematics and physics. The original name of the company MEDIQ Abraxas AB was changed in 2011 to Aplysia Medical AB due to a name mismatch with another recently established company. Aplysia is a prominent member of the group of animals called seaslugs showing a marvellous variation in design and colour, making them favourites of scuba divers all over the world. Some other members of the family also populate the website to make it more visually attractive. Aplysia was also a study object of the neuroscientist Eric Kandel who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine in 2000. His studies on the approximately 10 000 neurons in the Aplysia gives us perspectives on our own nervous system with 100 billion cells with 7000 connections each.     

Strategy

Combining clinical work as a doctor with research about cardiac physiology together with other clinical doctors, engineering expertise and mathematicans is as stimulating as anything can be...

Mathematics

Many     aspects     of     life     and     the surrounding   world   can   be   described with   help   of   mathematics.   It   often deepens    understanding    of    complex systems. Of   particular   interest   is   the   insight that   most   complex   systems   such   as the      stock      market,      metereology, human    behaviour    and    development of   diseases   such   as   cancer,   stroke   and myocardial            infarction            are intrinsically    unstable    and    therefore not fully predictable. The     chaos     theory     describes     the prerequisites   for   these   phenomenon so fundamental to our existence. If    you    grasp    a    little    about    these theories   you   realize   that   the   mystery of   life   is   eternal,   without   reclining to     new-age     theories     or     religious mysticism.
