During WCB 2018 we will have an industry session planned together with Anybody Technology
Time: 15.10 – 15.55 Wednesday, July 11
Title: Outdoor Motion Capture and Musculoskeletal Simulations
Speakers: Dr. Jason Konrath – Xsens | Dr. Pavel Galibarov – Anybody Technology
Session Details: Gait analysis is a standard tool within the biomechanics community. Moreover, the creation of musculoskeletal models allow researchers to estimate quantities difficult to measure non-invasively. Conventionally, these models require optical motion capture and force plate data to perform the inverse dynamic calculations which estimate muscle forces and joint moments. However, such applications are limited to gait laboratories.
Recently the AnyBody Modeling System has incorporated techniques that enable inverse dynamics calculations using solely kinematic input, combined with ground reaction force predictions. Xsens MVN is an inertial motion capture system with robust performance and can be used in any location. This allows motion data to be acquired in the natural environment of the participant. The latest software release of Xsens MVN Analyze 2018 includes new major features, such as immunity to magnetic disturbances and reduced skin tissue artefact.
In this joint AnyBody & Xsens session, we present the state of the art in inertial motion capture and musculoskeletal models. Furthermore, a workflow is presented to import Xsens motion data into AnyBody, such that full-force musculoskeletal simulations can be performed.
