Creating and animating subject-specific anatomical models is traditionally a difficult process involving medical image segmentation, geometric corrections and the manual definition of kinematic parameters. In this paper, we introduce a novel template morphing algorithm that facilitates 3D modeling and parameterization of skeletons. Target data can be either… (More)
Because of the redundancy in the musculoskeletal system, to generate a force at the hand in a given direction and with a given magnitude the central nervous system (CNS) has to select one of infinitely many possible muscle activation patterns. What strategies and constraints underlie such selection is an open and debated issue. The CNS might select muscle… (More)
Three major benefits of using commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) products to meet defense needs are: 1) reduces overall cost of the military hardware; 2) enhances the defense supplier base; and 3) maintains technological superiority by leveraging state-of-the-art technology rapidly. However, inadequate information on realistic military operating environments,… (More)
Three-dimensional fingertip trajectory was examined under different force levels of the lumbrical muscle to clarify the function of the lumbrical muscle in free index finger motion. The metacarpophalangeal joint balancing effect of the lumbrical muscle in the thumb-up position was also examined. The motions of the finger bones were recorded during simulated… (More)
