Today I received a question, which I found simple at first but then cost me a few hours to answer. "Can you visually show the joints as defined in AnyBody so we can make sense of the results?". Well a knee joint and a hip joint does not require any explanation. But latin names of the shoulder joints like glenohumeral, sternoclavicular, acromioclavicular etc. need some more explanation. So I ended up adding a simple code snippet to draw spheres at one of the nodes used in the joint definitions.

This is a common question asked when I give a presentation or demonstration on AnyBody musculo-skeletal modeling system (AMS). AnyBody software simply calculates a maximum muscle activity as a result of an inverse-dynamics analysis. For an arbitrary activity being analyzed you can get a maximum muscle activity result like 0.453, which means the maximum muscle activity among the muscles defined in the model is 45.3%. And the natural question is which muscle is having that maximum muscle activity level of 45.3%. Now the answer is not that simple, hence you are reading this blog post.
I just received the news that the new AnyBody Modelling System version has been just released. The newest release, version 7.2 can be downloaded from the AnyBody customer downloads area (https://lnkd.in/eUQ8-s6) . You can always request a trial license from firstname.lastname@example.org
One interesting aspect of the new release is that the setup file is now 792MB, where the previous release was 479MB. This means considerable new data. I will try to investigate what's new and what's important in this release, so please stay tuned.
