SantosHuman, Inc., a spinoff company that grew out of ongoing research at the UI Center for Computer-Aided Design, a unit of the College of Engineering, recently announced the release of a new plug-in module to its line of virtual human modeling and simulation software. Santos® Arm’s Force Field provides SantosHuman’s clients with the only existing way to access the most accurate, validated method to predict manual arm strength available today.

Based on over 12 years of research by Emeritus Professor Jim Potvin and Professor Nicholas La Delfa at McMaster University, the Santos® Arm’s Force Field method is currently available within the latest version of Santos® Pro and will also be bundled with the soon-to-be-released product, Santos® Lite.

Santos® virtual human modeling is the only software on the market that can predict human performance based on the physics of the human body. This includes human strength, fatigue and flexibility but also accounts for external factors such as environment, clothing and gender.
