The work for the development of an artificial system that contributes to the improvement of lower urinary tract dysfunctions (LUT-Lower Urinary Tract) based on a formal framework and that uses multiagent systems for the modeling of the neuroregulatory system and particular designs are part of the efforts to apply hardware solutions as a tendency to develop implantable devices in humans. For this, it has been necessary to design and build software tools representative of a theoretical-mathematical model with functionalities to simulate the behavior of the lower urinary tract and, at the same time, design prototypes of neuroregulatory centers that are housed in reconfigurable hardware (FPGA-Field Programmable Gate Array) in a kind of hybrid platform for experimentation on different solutions and candidate architectures. This research is based on a theoretical-mathematical model, which involves a software simulator, the design of particular components that implement functions of certain neuroregulatory centers in reconfigurable hardware and that leads to the need to develop a hybrid platform through integration. software-hardware. This paper presents an approach that designsand implements the integration process and constitutes an essential solution in this context.
