Objective: Develop Full Body Model with Muscle-Joint Contact Force Analysis
Through implementation of contact geometry native to OpenSim, the project aims to model compressive loading on joints resulting from muscle activity via CMC *or* prescribed activation profiles in forward dynamics. Current model development pertains to knee joint compressive loading resulting from IT-Band tension and knee/hip kinematics. Extension of this framework to other key joints or body segments will allow full body analysis of such joint loading mechanisms.
