Faster, More Accurate Computation of Muscle Paths for Musculoskeletal


Muscles play an important role in movement, and how they are modeled in a
simulation can affect both the simulation's accuracy and performance.  One
way to represent muscles is to use a line (a muscle path).  Simbios
postdoctoral fellow Ian Stavness has developed a faster, more accurate,
more flexible method for generating muscle paths around multiple,
potentially complex shapes.  Learn more about muscle paths and Dr.
Stavness' new formulation for determining them in our latest video posted
at http://simbios.stanford.edu.
