I applaud Santos and their progress with biomechanically accurate modeling and simulation of (physics-based) human activities. Wow!

The biggest improvement, in my book, is the creation of a tool that saves an incredible amount of time (and therefore cost). And by predicting motion, you don't have to bring humans in. 

Human testers and the medical costs that go along with botched empirical testing (...sorry about your back, man) will be seriously reduced since you will be able to zero in on what is optimal before giving it to a real person to try out.
