Load carrying capacity

Is there any way using AnyBody to predict the maximum load carrying capacity of a subject for a particular activity (say standing / walking) considering that the kinematic data from gait lab / Xsens is available under normal no load conditions.
Thanks in advance...

Hi Naga_S

As I understand your question you would like to capture xsens data of walking, create a model and then supply the model with additional load, that was not present while the measurement was created.

Although this is possible to do in the model technically, it would not really be representing reality since the motion would be likely to change due the added load. If you simply add the extra load to the model there is also no guarantee that the model would be able to keep the balance. It is possible that small extra loads would work out ok, but it will depend on where load is being added it's size and the dynamics of the model.

Best regards
