DESIGN OF THE 3D MODEL OF HUMAN BODY ORIENTED TO BIOMECHANICAL APPLICATIONS
This paper describes a biomechanical model of human body and an automatised method for determination of static anthropomeasures and inertial properties of body segments from anthropometric measurements. The method has been established for measuring female subjects. Characteristic body points on subjects have been recorded using the Elite system and 3D coordinates of marked points were the input data for calculating static and dynamic anthropomeasures using the program written in Matlab. For description of inertial properties, the body has been modelled using 16 geometric solids. The model and method described in this work could be used for computer simulation in biomechanics and computer design oriented to ergonomical applications.
