To date, musculoskeletal simulation studies require concurrent optical motion capture and force plate data to fully analyze the biomechanics. In this joint AnyBody Technology & Xsens webinar, we present a new workflow for obtaining full force data as well as compute muscle forces, without force plates or optical motion capture. The benefits include shorter setup times, no marker occlusion and the freedom to fully study outdoor activities.
