Biomechanics Research Group, Inc. Introduces Full Body Muscles in New LifeMOD Version

BRG Expands Biomechanics Modeling Capabilities Including Functionality from Many Commercial Clients.

SAN CLEMENTE, CA – July, 2004 — Biomechanics Research Group Inc. (BRG), the leading global provider of biomechanics simulation tools and services introduces a major release of its flagship software BRG.LifeMOD™. This major release is the product of a wide and growing user base, commercial client service work and research contracts.

“BRG is committed to developing tools that provide value to commercial entities who wish to study and analyze the performance of new devices early in the development process by considering realistic human motion, as well as providing a tool for research and education,” said Shawn McGuan, president and chief executive officer of BRG. “This release reflects BRG’s commitment to providing products and services to foster a greater understanding of the physics underlying human motion.”

“This new release of BRG.LifeMOD represents a quantum leap in human simulation technology”, McGuan continues. “Algorithms, techniques and data from the BRG.LifeMOD user group, commercial clients and research institutions were incorporated in BRG.LifeMOD to significantly expand the utility of the program into the areas of orthopedics, total joint replacement functional evaluation; sports, human-equipment performance; clinical, automated forward-dynamics gait simulation with true ground reaction contact modeling; and injury, human interaction with automobiles and motorcycles.”

“The most significant features in this new release is the addition of full body muscles automatically created and scaled to the personalized LifeMOD human model.” McGuan adds, “With this capability we can now create human models for any human activity to ascertain the internal muscle forces, timing sequences and reactions to the external environmental forces. Together this provides much information insight for sports scientists, clinicians, coaches, medical professionals, orthopedic designers, sports equipment manufacturers, and human performance researchers.”

Since its introduction, BRG.LifeMOD quickly became the de facto standard teaching and research tool in many universities throughout the world as well as an essential design tool integrated in CAD environments in many leading commercial institutions.
