VariPose® is a 3D electromagnetic simulation software that allows for the repositioning of the Male Visible Human mesh, including internal anatomical structures. Starting with the USAF male meshes in 10, 5, 3, 2 or 1 mm voxel format, VariPose allows the user to reposition body joints from knee, hip and elbow down to thumb and finger joints.
The actual repositioning process is computationally intensive and may take hours to days depending on the mesh voxel size and number of joints being repositioned. To make this efficient for the user VariPoseTM consists of two modules, the Graphical User Interface and the Repositioning Engine. The GUI allows viewing of the original mesh and any subsequently repositioned mesh, and provides information on the meshes including number of voxels of each tissue type, change in mass by tissue type after repositioning, and both 3D and 2D visualization. The GUI also has a stick man skeleton which the user can manipulate in real time to control the repositioning of each joint. Once the user is satisfied with the new mesh position, the GUI writes a control file that is then read by the Repositioning Engine along with the original mesh. Once the Engine has repositioned the mesh, it can then be read into the GUI for evaluation.
VariPose will provide repositioned meshes in both XFDTD and generic voxel formats.
