WEBINAR OVERVIEW – Presented in English
This webinar will highlight:
1) Advances in task-focussed human behaviour prediction; and, 2) How those advances are enhancing musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) risk assessment and informing upstream design. The first half of this webinar will overview the predictive human modeling software Santos® to reveal how task-focused human behaviour prediction is transforming the field of digital human modeling and removing the need to manually manipulate digital avatars. The second half of this webinar will summarize a series of case examples where Santos® was deployed to enhance MSD risk assessment and inform upstream design. MSD risk assessment examples will highlight how Santos® predictive models can inform assessment using the Arm Force Field and Duty Cycle Equation methods. Upstream design examples will highlight how Santos® predictive models can be used for trade-off analysis to optimize design based on preferred criteria.
