Provides stretch-reflex models for OpenSim
This project involves developing and evaluating new model components in OpenSim that represent stretch reflexes. Our planned design is intended to be sufficiently general-purpose that it can used to simulate normal, healthy stretch reflex responses as well as pathological conditions, such as spasticity. Our design separates the sensory components from the response components to provide greater flexibility for researchers to implement specific types of muscle spindle models and neural response mechanisms.
