3D anatomical functional models for the human musculoskeletal system

Magnenat-Thalmann, N. and Schmid, J.

Abstract: This paper presents the main research achievements of the EU Marie Curie RTN project titled 3D Anatomical Human (3DAH) ( The objective of 3DAH research network is to increase, by scientific exchange, the development of realistic functional 3D models of the human musculoskeletal system, with the methodology demonstrated on the human neuromusculoskeletal system of the lower limb. The core aim of the 3DAH is in the development of high-level models and thus improves the accessibility and usability of such simulation models by the clinicians. The network is naturally pluri-disciplinary and pluri-institutional and it strives to bridge complementary approaches for modeling and simulating the musculoskeletal system with methods spanning multiple levels of anatomy and physiological processes. With the project nearing completion (01/10/2006 - 30/09/2010), there has been a wide range of research outcomes and innovations discovered (12 journals, 41 conferences, 5 book chapters and 1 book). Highlights of this research are presented in this paper.
