Whole-body human reference model and tools for unifying representations of whole-body human motion

MMM Reference Model

The MMM framework provides mechanisms to define reference models which can be adapted by Model Processors in order to consider proband specific parameters.

Kinematic Specifications of the MMM Model

This reference model has been created regarding the definitions used in Winter ("Biomechanics and motor control of human movement", David A. Winter). Below you can see the joint positions in the image below and their normalized positions in the table below regarding the body length L in horizontal and vertical directions.

For example, given a model size of L=1,70m the size of the upper arm segment can be determined by multiplying the size L with the factor 0,188 (LS to LE) which results in a segment size of 31,96cm.

The second table shows the names of the joints, and the decomposition of the acronyms, to give a better understanding, why those acronyms were chosen.

Probad Specific Adaption of MMM Models

The MMM::Model may be processed by a MMM Model Processor in order to adapt the kinematic and dynamic structure as well as the appearance to proband specific parameters.
