The AnyBody Modeling System™ is a software system for simulating the mechanics of the live human body working in concert with its environment.
The environment is defined in terms of external forces and boundary conditions, and the user may impose any kind of posture or motion for the human body - either from scratch or from a set recorded motion data. AnyBody then runs a simulation and calculates the mechanical properties for the body-environment system.
From AnyBody the user can obtain results on individual muscle forces, joint forces and moments, metabolism, elastic energy in tendons, antagonistic muscle actions and much more.
AnyBody can also scale the models to fit to any population from anthropometric data or to any individual. Or, you can parameterize your studies in AnyBody to match product design trade-offs, finding the optimum combination of parameters to fulfill a given purpose.
With the AnyBody Modeling System™ you can:
- Handle body models with unprecedented detail efficiently - 1000+ muscle elements
- Obtain unique knowledge on the kinetics inside the body for a given environment
- Customize your models in the open scripting language AnyScript™
- Solve product design issues by scaling and optimizing parametric models
- Import data from Motion Capture systems to drive AnyBody models
- Export AnyBody data as input to Finite Element models
- Run the software on an ordinary PC
The AnyBody Modeling System™ is available from AnyBody Technology with discounted license prices for research and teaching purposes. Price information is available on request here.
