Abstract


The demographic development in many industrialised societies and markets with a growing power of

the customers augments the importance of user-centred design approaches. In this regard it is crucial

for design engineers to understand how the use of a product is affecting the prospective user physically

and emotionally. In this contribution an attempt is made to quantify physical

effects on the human body during the interaction with technical systems. We present an approach to

visualise biomechanical stress quantities obtained from simulations with musculoskeletal human

models within CAD engineering environments. The objective is to enable

designers to intuitively estimate how their solutions will influence the physical state of the user. The

topic is relevant for the design of technical artefacts that are characterised by a close interaction with

people. This comprises ergonomic questions in product design but also the

planning of manufacturing processes as well as the development of medical devices for training and rehabilitation
