The file contains a folder with the graphic files and two OpenSim models (*.osim): 1) UpperLowerBody.osim - this is the model obtained combining the lower limbs and upper limbs models as they are provided by their authors; 2) UpperLowerBodySimple.osim - this is a simplified version of the first model in which for example the fingers' degrees of freedom are removed. Furthermore the model comes with assigned mass properties on the basis of the cited publications (see the information provided at the beginning of the *.osim file).
