Digital Human Modeling and Simulation for Spine Biomechanics and Engineering

Abstract: With advanced computer computational power digital human modeling and simulation has been widely used in various areas such as engineering design and manufacturing, healthcare, and others. In this talk I will specifically focus on how to use digital human modeling and simulation technology for spine disorder diagnostics and guide for spine surgery to easily diagnose spine diseases in clinic and provide optimal spine surgery method. I will also summarize my lab research work on digital human modeling and simulation for engineering which is to utilize human simulation models to assess engineering designs in the early design stage to shorten design time and save money. Finally future trends will be summarized.
