Detailed, 3D simulations of everyday activities such as eating, moving and working allows us to improve health, performance and safety without expensive and invasive measurements and, with the use of high performance computing, can be used to optimise outcomes for community, for sports, and for workplace safety.

A “Digital Human”

(a) Laser scan of an elite athlete; (b) Digitisation of the athlete’s movement using the laser scan and a marker-less motion capture method

A digital replication of a person and their environment is built:

Non-invasive measurements

The digital human can be investigated in great detail without most of the ethical and practical concerns associated with physical experiments:

Real world outcomes

The computer models are based on measured physical and chemical data and outputs can be used to gain new understanding and optimise processes.
