Biomechanical Modeling & Simulation
Biomechanical Modeling is applied to simulate the effects of a product or job design on the human. Calculations of joint forces and torques as well as spinal disc pressures may be compared to population limitations. Modeling also allows design concepts to be evaluated in a virtual state. The NIOSH Lifting Analysis and University of Michigan 3-D Static Strength prediction model are among some of the techniques applied.
