Title Modeling the Motion of Human Muscle Systems with Computer Graphics
Date 1990-08
Description The Sarcomere system uses computer graphics to model human muscle systems. Each muscle is modeled as a collection of discrete, movable elements that we call muxels. The advantages of this model include fast integer-based processing and user specified variable resolution. The Sarcomere system processes the muscle data, contracting specified muscles (including muscle-muscle and muscle-bone interactions) according to the rules of muscle anatomy. Finally, the border outline of the muscle is approximated with B-splines.
