First OpenArm 3D muscle deformation data set released!

By Laura Hallock

The first generation of the OpenArm data set has now been ported from our lab website to the SimTK community! The released data comprises a factorial set of volumetric scans of the arm, generated using ultrasound and motion capture, that allows for analysis of both force- and configuration-associated muscle deformation for applications in biomechanics research, computer graphics, and assistive device development.

We invite anyone in the research community to use the OpenArm data set to validate existing muscle deformation models or to devise new ones.
