The New Approach: Boss-Procedure

  • Gerhard SilberEmail author

A new approach (Boss-Procedure) to mechanical soft tissue characterization and the generation of human body models (Boss-Models) is introduced. A stepwise procedure is presented to evaluate the mechanical properties of technical support device materials, such as bedding or seating systems or shoes, and to evaluate in vivo properties of human soft tissue materials. Tissue properties are assigned to the human Boss-Models and their interaction with technical support devices is investigated.
