Applied Research in Muscular Simulation

Computer Simulation 
(predict function from structure)

This video shows simulation of the ARM Model

 

We create biomechanical models that integrate anatomical and physiological data. We develop simulations of surgical procedures to help design better clinical outcomes.

Our simulations suggest that the surgeon’s intraoperative choice of attachment length for a tendon transfer influences the arm position in which the transferred muscle is strongest.
