What is the relationship between tensegrity and human body?

Tensegrity principles apply to all levels of the body. A macroscopic scale , the 206 bones that make up our skeleton, are compressed by the force of gravity and stabilized in the vertical position by the pull exerted by the muscles , tendons and ligaments (which have a similar role to the wires Kenneth Snelson sculptures ) . In the body, the bones are the structures compression when the muscles , tendons and ligaments work in traction. At the other end of the scale, proteins and other essential molecules are also stabilized by tensegrity . So tensegrity structures mimic the behavior of cells of living organisms.

The first theoretical model formulation settled , the idea that the spatial arrangement of -the architecture support- elements and preestrés isométrica- -the voltage level in the cytoskeleton , are the keys to the cell to be able to stabilize its shape. The analysis of all the results indicates that the current formulation of the cell theory of tensegrity , from simple models still predicts effectively numerous static mechanical behavior and , more surprisingly, implies certain dynamic behaviors. Recent research provides evidence that the global network of connective tissue is continuous and manages transfers force in the body

Tensegrity and ArtefactPro.

`It has been found that any architecture life on the planet - virus to vertebrates -Share the same underlying structure at the molecular level . This call tensegrity matrix , which forms an incredibly strong and flexible fabric continuous in all parts of the body. It is this matrix that makes it possible exploits such as mobility of the neck of a giraffe, the soaring flight of an eagle and the contortions of an acrobat.`


ArteFact_Pro, materializing functionally similar to the behavior of different segments of the human body models. carefully preparing each of the designs , we provide some biomechanical models that you can explain tensegrity , and its action in the body. In this way , you can make more rigorous considerations and more easily reason concepts such as muscle chains.
