Innovative office chair concept
Morten Mogensen, M.Sc. in Industrial Design, recently developed an office chair concept in his master thesis at Aalborg University, Denmark, using AnyBody throughout the design process.
Starting with AnyBody simulation studies on support of the body, suitable positions and human movement in chairs Morten came up with a list of functional design criteria for fixed and moving parts of his chair. Subsequently the optimization facilities in AnyBody were then used to select the physical test models needed for the final design verification.The end result is an innovative office chair concept with a documented approach on the human ergonomics developed in a cost-effective way in a short time frame.

Tips and tricks #11: Norm measures
The AnyKinMeasureNormComb object integrates several measures into one single measure; in this example one for each grey sphere representing its distance to the red surface.
ETS shoulder prostheses
The background of the work is that patients with total rotator cuff deficiency function rather poorly with the current prosthesis designs and typically will not be able to comb their hair or brush their teeth. It is the hope that systematic simulation may enable us to develop a superior prosthesis design to improve this situation.
