Basic Joints in AnyBody Modeling System

Submitted by admin on Mon, 06/10/2019 - 16:35

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.

How to find the muscle which is giving the maximum muscle activity in specific time step in Anybody?

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.

AnyBody Modelling System New Version :7.2 Release

Hello All;

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 bilgi@akromuhendislik.com

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.
