OpenSim Workshop at Summer School on Neurorehabilitation
By Joy Ku
Massimo Sartori and Monica Reggiani are leading a workshop, "Musculoskeletal Modeling and Simulation of Human Movement in OpenSim" at the Summer School in Neurorehabilitation (http://www.ssnr2016.org/) in Baiona, Spain from June 6-10, 2016.
This three-day hands-on workshop will introduce participants to the theory behind modeling and simulation of human musculoskeletal function in OpenSim, along with the framework of the software architecture and functionalities. Participants will learn to create subject-specific musculoskeletal models and derive the underlying muscle dynamics using inverse and forward dynamics approaches. The workshop will teach how to use the OpenSim's graphical user interface and how to access the underlying Opensim API through MATLAB.
