The state-of-the-art in virtual human modeling
LifeMOD™ is a complete, state-of-the-art virtual human modeling and simulation software solution. Its advanced capabilities and intuitive graphical interface, developed and refined over two decades, enable engineers, designers, and others interested in biomechanics to create human models of any order of fidelity, report true engineering data, and enable rapid and repetitive testing of designs, all while slashing time, cost, and risk from new product development.
The new standard for a fast-growing industry
KneeSIM is a dynamic, 3D, physics-based software solution for studying the mechanics of the human knee. A plug-in module to LifeMOD™, KneeSIM simulates the in-vivo performance of total knee replacement (TKR) systems, enabling innovation and enhancing quality, all while slashing time, cost, and risk from new product development.
New insight into the lower back
LumbarSIM automatically creates a detailed lumbar spine model and separates it into individual vertebral segments (L1-L5) and disc forces. A plug-in module to LifeMOD™, LumbarSIM provides new insights for orthopaedic surgeons and researchers involved in spinal surgery, spinal cord stimulation implants, and artificial disc replacement. Automotive ride comfort and injury analyses can also benefit from LumbarSIM.
Fast, accurate simulation of the cervical spine
NeckSIM, a plug-in module to LifeMOD™, automatically creates a detailed cervical spine model and separates it into individual vertebral segments and disc forces. NeckSIM is being used in such diverse applications as detailed crash effect determination, surgical evaluations such as fixation or fusion, and medical implant design.
Drive neck and spine models with motion-capture test data
The MotionMatrix™ reader enhances LifeMOD™ model accuracy during difficult-to-capture seated activities by importing data from skin-based sensors for use with motion-capture technology. Augmenting standard video-based motion capture with diagnostic motion solutions such as Friendly Sensors AG’s sonoSens® system, MotionMatrix enables spinal and neck motion to be driven quickly and easily by test data.
