In the computer graphics field, mesh simplification, multi-resolution analysis and surface parameterization techniques have been widely investigated. This paper presents innovative applications of those techniques to the biomechanical analysis of thin elastic braces. The braces are represented in polygonal meshes, and mesh simplification and multi-resolution analysis enable fast geometric computation and processing. The multi-resolution brace mesh is parameterized for strain energy calculation. The experiment results prove that 3D geometrical analysis works quite well for assistive medical device design.
