Organisation profile

Musculoskeletal modelling in the AnyBody Research Group.

The group's activities are rooted in a deep competence in computational mechanics applied to biological systems. The work is centred on developing methods for musculoskeletal modelling, which has led to the development of the AnyBody Modeling System and its associated repository of musculoskeletal models. In addition, the group works with solid mechanics problems in hard and soft tissues. The group has close links to the Department of Health Science and Technology.

Typical applications of the group's work are within health science, sports, rehabilitation, product design and ergonomics, and examples are planning of orthopaedic surgery, prevention of pressure ulcers, design of badminton rackets, analysis of movement techniques in football kicking, design of wheelchairs, analysis of fatigue in car drivers and design of work places.
