Look, but don’t touch: Digital Humans and performance analysis
Harnessing the power of high-performance computing, a Digital Human is a detailed replica of a person (or part of a person) and their environment. It digitally duplicates someone’s anatomy by using data from body scans and medical imaging, enabling us to evaluate the functions, movement and health of a person without putting them through invasive tests.
