Adding new segment between joints


If I want to add a new segment between the knee joint in the Mocap model, which could move relative to shank and thigh, respectively, (the original knee joint would be divided into two joints). What change should I do?

Any help would be appreciated!

Best Wishes,

Hi Lee,

First of all it is a good idea to use the MechObjectExclude object to exclude the standard knee joint from the study, in this way you can avoid to change the normal knee joint and it associated files.

Secondly you will need to your new joint to the model

So you can open the Leg joint folder from your application model without changing the leg model in this way

Main ={
Main.HumanModel.BodyModel.Right.Leg.Jnt ={

//Add your joint here e.g


Depending on how you want to define the joint you will need to add a segment, kinematic measures and drivers on these measures.

Hope it helps

Best regards
