Kinematic Constraints in the spine

This project provides adult male and female musculoskeletal full-body models with a detailed thoracolumbar spine as well as the code for personalizing the models, including the adjustment of spinal alignment based on skin markers.

Kinematic Constraints in the spine

Post by Isabelle Ebisch » Mon Jan 10, 2022 1:17 am

Hi all,

thank you for uploading this new model.
As I understand this model doesn't have any kinematic constraints in the spine unlike most of the previous spine-models. I was wondering if and how you were still be able to solve the Inverse Kinematics problem?

Thanks and best wishes

Hi Isabelle

Sorry for the late reply. With the included marker set, we were so far able to appropriately solve the IK probelm without any kinematic constraints.

All the best
