Arne Kiis, AnyBody Technology, will present Gait simulation and foot modeling at the Footscan® Users World Meeting, Sep 13-15, Gijon, Spain
Karl Siebertz and Jessica Rausch with Ford Forschungszentrum in Aachen, Germany will present: Simulation des menschlichen Bewegungsapparates zur Innenraumgestaltung von Fahrzeugen (coauthored with J. Rasmussen and S. Torholm) at the Die Deutsche Gesellschaft für Luft- und Raumfahrt conference Oct 18-19 in Hamburg, Germany.
Tips and tricks #9: Displaying node trajectories
When developing models it is often convenient to be able to actually see the trajectory of a certain point (node) in the model such as a marker from a motion capture experiment or perhaps a joint center.
INDEX: AWARD EXHIBITION
As one of the top-nominated designs for the 2007 award AnyBody is part of the INDEX exhibition now starting to tour the world. First stop is Copenhagen, Denmark, Aug 17 - Sep 23. Next follws the Gwangju Design Biennale 2007, Oct 5 - Nov 3.
AnyBody is proud to present work done in cooperation with four clients: DePuy International, Ford Motor Co., RBM, and RSScan International.
Project: Wheelchair propulsion
Sarah Sullivan from Rutgers University in New Jersey has spent one month in the AnyBody Research Project completing her model of wheelchair propulsion and validating it against EMG data. The fundamental problem Sarah is trying to solve is finding a layout of the wheelchair that reduces the risk of overuse injuries in the gleno-humeral joint. The model now works very well, and Sarah has returned to New Jersey to complete her thesis on the subject.
Sarah has kindly offered to present her work in a public webcast on Nov. 8.
