This project contains files related to the paper, "Predicting gait adaptations due to ankle plantarflexor muscle weakness and contracture using physics-based musculoskeletal simulations" by Ong, Geijtenbeek, Hicks, and Delp. Pre-print available: https://doi.org/10.1101/597294
Using an optimization framework (SCONE) and a musculoskeletal modeling package (OpenSim), we generated realistic simulations of walking at many speeds. We then modeled muscle weakness or contracture in the ankle plantarflexor muscles to study how these deficits contribute to observed gait changes.
This project provides results from all of our simulations. We also provide Docker build instructions and SCONE setup files for others to reproduce our results.
