Dear Biomch-L subscribers,

As you know, Biomch-L has a strict "no advertising" policy. However, we will consider newsworthy information sent to us by a company, exactly as a magazine or newspaper might use a news release.

Therefore, below are details about an upcoming webcast by the AnyBody Group in Denmark. After the event, it would be great to have some postings on Biomch-L with comments from viewers/participants.

Public webcast of a musculoskeletal gait model.

The AnyBody Research Group is presenting a new gait model in a public webcast on June 21. The presentation takes roughly one hour and participation is free. All you need is a PC with internet access and a speaker (the audio is transmitted along with the presentation via the internet). The event is hosted by AnyBody Technology, and signup for the event can be made at www.anybodytech.com.

The model comprises two legs and a pelvis segment with a total of some 60 muscles and is driven directly by motion capture and force platform data available from the ISB homepage. The model computes individual muscle and joint forces for the gait cycle, and this computation happens in close to real time.

The web cast will demonstrate how the direct driving of the model by means of marker coordinates is possible, and the resulting muscle recruitment and joint forces will be demonstrated and discussed.

We are hoping many of the list subscribers will attend the presentation.

Best regards,
John Rasmussen
