Provide an easy-to-use method to create musculoskeletal simulation models of human-artifact interaction based on CAD data.
This project provides methods and tools to conduct biomechanical analyses of human-artifact interaction. The objective is to facilitate the creation of models to predict the effects of interaction processes on the human musculoskeletal system. Designers gain valuable insights on how to improve the ergonomic quality of consumer products and workplaces. Our research currently focuses on the integration of OpenSim into CAD environments as well as the prediction of human motion based on interaction goals.
