Meet Santos™

At Virtual Soldier Research (VSR), we develop Santos™, a virtual human who stands at the center of our digital human modeling and simulation research. Our high fidelity, biomechanically accurate musculoskeletal model was developed from the inside out by our team of biomedical engineers, and incorporates 215 degrees of freedom, including the hand, feet, and eyes. The dimensions of the skeleton are mutable, able to represent any anthropometric cross section.
