To Biomch-L Colleagues:

I am looking for information on a commercial 2D dynamics modeling packaged
called "Working Model" or other programs that would allow us to do 2D
forward dynamics modeling. If you have information on this program or other
forward dynamics software (shareware or commercial), I would be interested
in hearing from you. The large and sophisticated packages (e.g.,
articulated-total-body-model, and dynaMan) are well beyond our needs and our
budget. I'm specifically interested in manipulating mass characteristics of
a 3-segment system (lower extremity during kicking - no contact with
external object) and evaluating changes in the segmental kinematics.
Experimental data have been collected with a WATSMART 2-camera system,
inverse dynamics calculations follow the methods of Schneider & Zernicke
(Schneider K, Zernicke RF. A FORTRAN package for the planar analysis of limb
intersegmental dynamics from spatial coordinate-time data. Advanced
Engineering Software 1990;12:123-128.)

A summary of responses will be posted.

Thank you for your assistance.
