Physically-based simulation of ballet dancer’s hip

Assassi, L. and Volino, P. and Magnenat-Thalmann., N.


Abstract: This work describes a methodology for the simulation of the mechanical behavior of the dancers hip. Patient-specific anatomical and kinematical models are used as input to simulate the hip cartilages deformations during motion. Based on computer graphic techniques, this methodology allows a 3D visualization and assessment of pressure distribution, offering orthopedists a complementary tool for diagnosis.
