Human lifestyle has the potential to gain from exoskeletons. What is not as apparent is how exoskeletons could be better designed to capitalize on human anatomy and ability. These synergistic human-robot interactions can be explored in-silico in AnyBody Modeling System™, which can revolutionize the approach to human-centered design.
There are always challenges in how to predict and evaluate important functionality of exoskeletons, e.g. maximum actuator force and maximum actuator power. The issue of how to optimize the design variables of exoskeletons, such as precise joint locations, is a crucial challenge that can make an exoskeleton fail in the operational use. Also, excessive strap pressure can lead to skin ulcers, necrotic tissue and infections, which is deemed to be one metric for design and evaluation of exoskeletons.
- Muscle forces and muscle activations
- Muscle and total metabolic power and energy
- Human joint reaction forces
- Dynamic variables of the exoskeleton like joint torque, power and reaction forces
- Interaction forces between the human and the exoskeleton.
The AnyBody Modeling System™ enables you to explore how the effect on a human will change, if the designer chooses to edit the exoskeleton’s specifications, such as dimensions and actuator powers.
AnyBody musculoskeletal simulations can help optimize your R&D value chain from idea to the actual product and shorten the time to market.
