The purpose of this project is to provide a dynamic jaw model to the OpenSim community for analyzing jaw biomechanics and the action of jaw muscles

This project provides a musculoskeletal model of the masticatory system that is suitable for forward dynamics simulation. The model is based on the dynamic jaw model in ArtiSynth (
