Muscle Path Wrapping on Arbitrary Surfaces
Musculoskeletal computer models are increasingly being used in biomedical research and clinical decision making. We propose a new method for simulating the dynamic interaction between muscles and bones in musculoskeletal models. Our method allows strand-based muscles to wrap directly on arbitrary, mesh-based surfaces, which permits more accurate modeling and tailoring to individual patients. It works with multiple and non-convex surfaces, and allows paths to come into and out of surface contact during dynamic musculoskeletal simulations. This new muscle wrapping method is implemented in the open source simulation system ArtiSynth (www.artisynth.org)... Read more
