Use of Santos® Technologies to Evaluate Risk of Injury from Impact Due to Flailing

Presented by: Steven C. Beck, President & CEO, SantosHuman Inc.


A predictive digital human model provides capabilities that are foundational to a truly human-centric virtual product design platform.  The flexibility of a 1st principles approach to predicting physical human behavior and performance provides product designers; engineers; and ergonomics, human factors, and occupational health and safety professionals with a virtual design partner that can not only evaluate existing designs but more importantly, inform product development decisions at the earliest stages of design.

This webinar will demonstrate one of many ways in which Santos® technologies provide virtual trade-off analysis capabilities for human-in-the-loop feedback that is critical in creating better designs that can be brought into production sooner while decreasing exposure to risk of injury.

As a specific example, Santos technologies will be used to analyze the space surrounding the occupants of an amusement park ride to ensure the design and its restraint system provides a required safety envelope.

Webinar Outline

  • The fundamentals of Santos Predictive Models
  • The use of Santos Zone Differentiation to perform trade off analysis relevant to the requirements for an Occupant Safety Envelope
  • The use Santos IsoContouring to create 3D surfaces encompassing Zone Differentiation Volume regions that can be used to inform design within any product design environment

Who Should Attend?
Product Designers; Human Factors, Ergonomics, and Human Systems Integration Professionals; and anyone interested in ensuring that their company avoids the loss of market share and confidence due to:

  • Market rejection based on customer dissatisfaction
  • Costly and time-consuming product redesigns
  • Amplified risk of injury liabilities
  • Ongoing budget and deadline overruns
