Musculoskeletal Modeling Workshop 2019


We will once again organize a Musculoskeletal Modeling Workshop using the AnyBody Modeling System.

The course will include a review and discussion of important theoretic background, but emphasis will be on practical skills to perform musculoskeletal simulations with the AnyBody Modeling System. The course will span several areas of musculoskeletal simulation from medical device development to ergonomics, sport performance, general biomechanics and academic/clinical research.

The course schedule will include:

Day 1: AnyBody Modeling System and Model Repository, Kinematics, Muscle Models/Recruitment

Day 2: Templates, Scaling Options, Motion Capture


Day 3: Advanced Models (parameter or optimization studies), Interfaces to other software

Day 4: Shoulder modeling symposium: State-of-the-Art modeling of shoulder biomechanics, measurement of kinematics and muscle activations and more will be presented as part of the EFRE research project “Virtuelle Menschmodelle für die Prävention, Therapie und Rehabilitation von Schultererkrankungen / Virtuální model člověka pro prevenci, léčbu a rehabilitaci onemocnění ramene”. The project is a cooperation between the University of West Bohemia, New Technologies Center Pilsen, clinical partners and our lab. It is funded by:



The workshop will be a mix between theory and applied hands-on modeling.

Date:  March 4th – March 7th, 2019

Location: Laboratory for Biomechanics, Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Regensburg, Germany

Cost: Free of charge
