Özet

Mechanical interaction of human body with surrounding is mostly via soft tissues because human body is nearly entirely covered with them. Finite element method, extensively used in various fields of engineering, could not reach to a similar success in simulating soft tissues (especially for modeling the interaction with exoskeletal prosteses and orthoses) mainly because soft tissue mechanical behavior is not known in detail in addition to relatively complex mechanical response of soft tissues.
