Abstract


This contribution illustrates a methodology to customize biomechanical digital human models to resemble people of different age and ability groups for the use in simulations to support user-centered design. Especially the conception of man models of elderly people holds potential for analyzing and optimizing products to yield more universal designs, due to the high heterogeneity of needs, wants and capabilities in this specific age group. The present approach considers age-related performance restrictions, but is also extendable to disease-related limitations. The conception process itself includes the scaling of anthropometry, muscle forces, range of motion as well as motion speed based on data from literature or manual measurements. The parameters are either selected by percentiles or the specific values itself.
