Biomechanics Research Group, Inc.
San Clemente, CA, USA

The Biomechanics Research Group, Inc. (BRG) is a provider of complete
solutions to university and commercial institutions interested in the
physics behind biological motion. The BRG develops software solutions
built on the popular ADAMS (MSC.software, Inc.) platform as the physics
engine to develop general and customized biomechanics simulation tools.

The flagship product of the BRG is the LifeMODR forward dynamics
biomechanics modeling environment. In the LifeMOD software package,
three types of human body representations include skeletal, skin/clothed
and ellipsoidal which are scaled from one of several anthropometric
databases for male, female and child populations. Simulations may be
performed including passive (crash, injury, etc.) inverse dynamics and
forward dynamics.

The integration of LifeMOD with MATLAB allows sophisticated CNS type
controllers to activate muscle models in conjunction with model feedback
sensors for full closed loop gait simulation. A unique method of "motion
agents" is used to account for errors in motion capture data and reduce
the acceleration spikes in the joint torque functions. The human models
may interact with each other or any physical machine or environment for
true physics-based simulation.

The types of applications performed by our customers include crash,
injury, slips falls, gait, CNS control, sports performance, sports
equipment, man-machine effects safety, etc.

To support this activity, BRG offers comprehensive biomechanics and
general simulation consulting services drawing on over 15 years of
research and development and from consulting work with over 50 companies
and research institutions.

The BYP lists companies that offer biomechanics-related products and
services. As you know, these companies may not post commercial
announcements directly to Biomch-L. However, new BYP listings and
updates (no more than once per year) are posted to Biomch-L by the
maintainer of the BYP or the Biomch-L moderator.
