Dear friend,

Sebastian Dendorfer, PhD, AnyBody Technology, will be giving a free webcast
presentation on Wednesday August 20th:

TLEM: A new detailed lower extremity model.

The new Twente Lower Extremity Model (TLEM) is based on a recently published
morphological dataset on muscle and joint parameters by Martijn
Klein-Horsman from the University of Twente [1].

The model consists of 159 muscles and has 6 joint degrees of freedom. It has
been validated against ‘state of the art’ literature with respect to its
biomechanical performance and first applications in gait and cycling deliver
very convincing results. The model is currently being used in a project with
the European Space Agency (ESA), which aims at analyzing the relationship
between mechanical boundary conditions and bone loss during space flights.

The new leg model itself will be public and we are looking forward to
include the new lower extremity model in the next update of the Repository.
