  • Musculoskeletal Simulation Webinar Series

    Dear Colleagues,

    Ozen Engineering is continuing its monthly webinar series on topics
    related to musculoskeletal simulation. The next webinar topic and
    time is listed below.

    To sign up, please go to:

    Webinar Topic:

    In previous webinars, we have presented workflows that suggest a
    comprehensive optimization of an implant is possible by using boundary
    conditions derived from a musculoskeletal simulation, importing those
    loads into a Finite Element Analysis, calculating metrics related to
    device performance, and then optimizing the device geometry with
    respect to select criteria. In those previous webinar presentations,
    the loads from the musculoskeletal simulations have been constant and
    have not been dynamically updated to reflect changes in the inertia
    properties of the updated device geometry. Additionally, only one
    activity of daily living was used.

    This webinar will address those deficiencies and present a more
    complete workflow. Specifically, the musculoskeletal simulation is
    now included in the optimization loop and multiple activities are
    incorporated to demonstrate how a library of activities can be
    functionally used for device assessment. The design optimization has
    been carried out using AnyBody, Any2Ans, Ansys, and modeFRONTIER.

    Title: Design Optimization, Evaluating a Trauma Implant Under Loads
    Derived From Musculoskeletal Simulation
    Date: Thursday, October 22, 2009 (please note that the webinar is on
    Thursday and not on Friday)
    Time: 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM PDT
