Abstract

This paper surveys the usage of human simulation by the commercial industry. The intention is to provide students with an awareness of potential job opportunities and the appropriate skill set the various sectors of the commercial industry would find attractive. A wide spectrum of biomechanics market segments are identified and a commercial application for each one is described. The commercial industry segments addressed include sports performance/equipment, orthopedics, clinical applications, injury evaluation and task simulation.
