Simulating Movement – How do we move?

Through the use of biomechanical simulations, we can analyze human movements to gain valuable insights into performance or health conditions. This means that we can externally observe the internal states of a person. Additionally, we can create entirely new movements, for instance, to virtually test the design of prosthetics specifically for each patient before a prototype is built. These simulations have significant applications in the fields of sports, medicine, and prosthetics, providing fascinating insights into human movements. In the sub-project´s C01 stand visitors were able to see, for example, how a person would run uphill on Jupiter!
