Measuring force in arm muscles

Postby yokhesh » Wed May 01, 2019 6:01 am


I am a graduate student.
I am using makehuman software for my project.
I have built a human model.
But, I want to measure the forces in each of the muscles in the arm for any given action.
Please let me know if it is possible to do it.
Thanks in advance.

You would need to code your own physics simulation using some other software as MH itself has NO physics apart from from constraints defined for each joint of the skeleton blender's internal physics engine might be useful though verifying the resultant numbers may be problematic. Good luck solving this issues and do feel free to ask more questions on either makehuman or blender.

Enjoy the Choice :)

I feel like SimTK would make more sense for this, although I haven't used it myself (but I want to learn how to use it...)
