MADYMO is the worldwide standard software for the design and analyses of safety devices that protect occupants in car crashes, such as seatbelts and airbags. It features generic multibody and finite element capabilities, a full range of predictive and efficient occupant models (both crash dummies and real humans) and tools to support the design optimisation process. MADYMO’s simulation capabilities can also be used in sports applications to efficiently design, simulate, virtually test and optimise devices that protect humans against impact loading or that help humans to optimize their biomechanical performance.
