We very proudly announce Dr Paul’s upcoming new book, “DHM and Medicine: The Digital Twin”, which will again be published by the leading publishing house Elsevier / Academic Publishing in Q4/2022.
The announcement by the publisher can be found here. The Digital Twin is the state-of-the-art approach using in-silico medicine methodology which complements traditional medicine. While mostly based on individual researcher contributions in Australia, in-silico medicine has received significant political and research support from various European Union agencies. Aussie Ergonomics remains at the forefront of in-silico rehabilitation engineering with a service process that is entirely ISO 20342-1:2019 compliant (assistive products for tissue integrity when lying down – general requirements) which we also apply to seated pressure ulcer prevention.
KEY FEATURES of the book:
• A non-specialist level, up-to-date overview and introduction to all medically relevant DHM systems to inform trialing, procurement decisions and initial application
• Includes user-level examples and case studies of DHM applications in various medical fields
• Clearly structured and focused compendium that is easy to access, read and understand
Digital Human Modeling and Medicine: The Digital Twin explores the body of knowledge and state-of-the-art in Digital Human Modeling (DHM) and its applications in medicine. DHM is the science of representing humans with their physical properties, characteristics and behaviors in computerized, virtual models. These models can be used standalone or integrated with other computerized object design systems to both design or study designs of medical devices or medical device products and their relationship with humans. They serve as fast and cost-efficient computer-based tools for the assessment of human functional systems and human-system interaction.
This book provides an industry first introductory and practitioner focused overview of human simulation tools, with detailed chapters describing body functional elements and organs, organ interactions and fields of application. Thus, DHM tools and a specific scientific/practical problem – functional study of the human body – are linked in a coherent framework. Eventually the book shows how DHM interfaces with common physical devices in medical practice, answering to a gap in literature and a common practitioner question. Case studies provide the applied knowledge for practitioners to make informed decisions.
