New AnyBody Version (7.3.1) is released and it is 3X faster...

Today (Oct 6th 2020), AnyBody Technology presented it's newest and latest musculo-skeletal simulation software AnyBody Modelling System(AMS) version 7.3.1. This latest version also comes with an updated modelling repository (AMMR version 2.3.1). The most exciting part to me is the improved interface which improves the user experience.

Number of uMED Ergonomy licenses reached 350

It has been quite some time we released uMED Ergonomy to public use freely for their basic ergonomic needs. Today we have reached total number of 350 licenses we generated for uMED. I would like to thank the paid customers who made uMED Ergonomy possible, and I hope the uMED Ergonomy helped their users. We would like to keep uMED alive and improving, so seeing these numbers motivate us. Thank you.

I also would like to underline that your feedback is valuable to us. So please keep using uMED Ergonomy and feel free to send your feedback.

Recent PhD Thesis uses AnyBody Modeling System

Fatih Alibeyoglu, a recent PhD graduate from Atatürk University used AnyBody Modeling System(AMS) to perform patient specific craniofacial finite element analysis in his thesis work. The thesis is soon to be published on YOK thesis database and become available to public. Alibeyoglu specifically used AMS to retrieve realistic forces exerted on bony structure on muscle attachment points and joints.

Basic Joints in AnyBody Modeling System

Today I received a question, which I found simple at first but then cost me a few hours to answer. "Can you visually show the joints as defined in AnyBody so we can make sense of the results?". Well a knee joint and a hip joint does not require any explanation. But latin names of the shoulder joints like glenohumeral, sternoclavicular, acromioclavicular etc. need some more explanation. So I ended up adding a simple code snippet to draw spheres at one of the nodes used in the joint definitions.

How to find the muscle which is giving the maximum muscle activity in specific time step in Anybody?

This is a common question asked when I give a presentation or demonstration on AnyBody musculo-skeletal modeling system (AMS). AnyBody software simply calculates a maximum muscle activity as a result of an inverse-dynamics analysis. For an arbitrary activity being analyzed you can get a maximum muscle activity result like 0.453, which means the maximum muscle activity among the muscles defined in the model is 45.3%. And the natural question is which muscle is having that maximum muscle activity level of 45.3%. Now the answer is not that simple, hence you are reading this blog post.

AnyBody Modelling System New Version :7.2 Release

Hello All;

I just received the news that the new AnyBody Modelling System version has been just released. The newest release, version 7.2 can be downloaded from the AnyBody customer downloads area ( . You can always request a trial license from

One interesting aspect of the new release is that the setup file is now 792MB, where the previous release was 479MB. This means considerable new data. I will try to investigate what's new and what's important in this release, so please stay tuned.
