My name is Ilona Manka. I'm Phd student from Silesian Univerity of
Technology, Faculty of Applied Mechanics, from Poland. I interested modeling of
spine and especially scoliosis. I have a quation.
Is it a data in AnyBody system about value of muscular forces and geometry
of vertebras ?
Do you Yahoo!?

Welcome to the AnyScript group and thanks for posting your question
The muscular forces is what the system computes once the user has
defined a model and added loads and boundary conditions to it. So if
you create a correct model of the human spine and add gravity and
other external loads, the system will compute the force in each
individual muscle and the reaction forces between the vertebrae.
The problem here is that the human body in general and the spine in
particular takes a lot of time and effort to model correctly. So to
help people get started on modeling projects, the AnyBody Research
Group is maintaining a public domain repository of models at
http://anybody.auc.dk. The models there are made by different users
of the system who have agreed to set their models at the disposal of
others in the hope that people will use them, improve them, and
contribute to their validation.
So the answer is that the system “contain” the muscle force values,
but it computes them.
Neither does it contain any models, but there are models available
from the repository. The repository has geometric models of the
vertebrae, but currently the mechanics of the spine model is
simplified and developed for a lifting simulation only. By Christmas
we will post a much more detailed model of the lumbar spine
containing literally hundreds of muscles complete with PCSA, origin
and insertion points, line-of-action, and so on. Later we expect to
have models also of the thoracic part, but it will take some time.
