3DSSPP and ErgoImager

WHAT DOES IT DO?

This is a three dimensional software package that can be used to translate two dimensional photographs into three dimensional human mannequins. The software calculates the predicted musculoskeletal forces in the various joints of the body as well as giving an indication of whether or not they are within acceptable limits.


Assessment of: Musculoskeletal forces and torques

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The ErgoImager software package allows you to accurately translate a two dimensional photograph into a three dimensional mannequin in the appropriate working posture. The 3DSSPP software then calculates the forces involved by taking the load being moved into account as well as the direction the load is being moved in.
