Santos® University Program.

SantosHuman, Inc welcomes Nipissing University’s School of Physical and Health Education to the Santos® University Program. Dr. Aaron Kociolek, Assistant Professor in Biomechanics and Ergonomics, will utilize SantosHuman Inc. (SHI) software in his study of biomechanics and control of the hand. Kociolek is also excited to show students how digital human modeling and virtual reality can be used proactively in the initial design phase of a workplace.
