Expedite product development and testing

The AnyBody products and services help you revolutionize designs for consumer products, within reduced time frames and costs. We provide objective, data backed solutions to help you address a wide array of development challenges such as optimizing performance of products interacting with the human body and ensuring human compliance with your product. Use population based simulations in areas as e.g. handtool analysis, packaging analysis and ease of use analysis.

Wheelchair analysis


  • Packaging analysis: opening, handeling
  • Handtool analysis: grip, weigth balance
  • Personal product analysis: ease of use
  • Home appliance products analysis: ergonomics

and more…
