    Biomechanics Research Group, Inc.
    San Clemente, CA, USA

    The Biomechanics Research Group, Inc. (BRG) is a provider of complete
    solutions to university and commercial institutions interested in the
    physics behind biological motion. The BRG develops software solutions
    built on the popular ADAMS (, Inc.) platform as the physics
    engine to develop general and customized biomechanics simulation tools.

    The flagship product of the BRG is the LifeMODR forward dynamics
    biomechanics modeling environment. In the LifeMOD software package,
    three types of human body representations include skeletal, skin/clothed
    and ellipsoidal which are scaled from one of several anthropometric
    databases for male, female and child populations. Simulations may be
    performed including passive (crash, injury, etc.) inverse dynamics and
    forward dynamics.

    The integration of LifeMOD with MATLAB allows sophisticated CNS type
    controllers to activate muscle models in conjunction with model feedback
    sensors for full closed loop gait simulation. A unique method of "motion
    agents" is used to account for errors in motion capture data and reduce
    the acceleration spikes in the joint torque functions. The human models
    may interact with each other or any physical machine or environment for
    true physics-based simulation.

    The types of applications performed by our customers include crash,
    injury, slips falls, gait, CNS control, sports performance, sports
    equipment, man-machine effects safety, etc.

    To support this activity, BRG offers comprehensive biomechanics and
    general simulation consulting services drawing on over 15 years of
    research and development and from consulting work with over 50 companies
    and research institutions.

    The BYP lists companies that offer biomechanics-related products and
    services. As you know, these companies may not post commercial
    announcements directly to Biomch-L. However, new BYP listings and
    updates (no more than once per year) are posted to Biomch-L by the
    maintainer of the BYP or the Biomch-L moderator.
