Dear Subscribers,

Dr. Kenneth Meijer, Maastricht University and TU Eindhoven, The Netherlands,
will be giving a free webcast presentation on "Scaling strength in human
simulation models" on Wednesday, January 17, 2007.

Simulating human movement with multi-body models enables virtual experiments
that are too difficult, costly or dangerous to perform in reality. When
simulation models are used for subject-specific goals, like planning a
rehabilitation intervention, it is important that they are based on
subject-specific data. Therefore, accurate strength scaling, accounting for
subject specific differences, is required. Unfortunately, current strength
scaling methods are poorly validated. The aim of this study was to develop
scaling laws of increasing complexity and validate them with experimental
data on upper leg and arm strength.

To accommodate viewers from different sides of the planet we are running the
presentation twice with 12 hours interval:

First show: 9am Central European Time, 3am Eastern Time.
Second show: 9pm Central European Time, 3pm Eastern Time.

The duration of the webcast is one hour including questions.
