Hello Dr. Menegaldo,

I must chime in on this one.

If you are looking for a software product to create human models (crash dummies) which run in ADAMS please consider LifeMOD from the Biomechanics Research Group, Inc. (See www.lifemodeler.com)

My company has over 16 years experience in creating human models using ADAMS for various commercial enterprises and research institutions and LifeMOD represents a culmination of all the tools and methods developed over the years. Today, LifeMOD has a very large user base and has been used quite successfully to create human models for the study of injury in scenarios regarding automobiles, motorcycle, bicycles, wheelchairs, stilts, amusement rides, and animals.

I will admit up front, that LifeMOD is no Madymo. However, in addition to crash studies, LifeMOD can be used to develop scalable musculoskeletal models for the evaluation of gait, rehabilitation protocols, new joint replacement devices, spinal fixation strategies, surgical intervention strategies, motorcycle control, sports performance and equipment design, etc. It has proven to be quite a useful tool in the university setting to provide students with an exposure to many areas of biomechanics simulation.

Please see www.lifemodeler.com for technical background, case studies and software trials.

Regards,

Shawn McGuan
