Soccer - ACL, long-term injury risk etc.

Combine measurements from different sources such as motion capture, electromyography, and environment variables to analyze scenarios close to real-world situations. The anatomically detailed human model of the AnyBody Modeling System provides the basis for investigating muscle forces, tendon strains, joint contact forces and much more.


  • Investigate mechanisms of soccer injuries
  • Injury risk identification
  • Investigate movement strategies
  • Estimate muscle activity
  • Investigate muscle injuries e.g., adductor injuries, groin injuries, ACL injuries etc.
