Provide researchers with tools created at UW-Madison to improve the development of musculoskeletal models and simulations.
This project contains a collection of tools developed at UW-Madison for musculoskeletal modeling in OpenSim. These tools have been developed such that they can be plugged into current OpenSim models.
1) UW Ligament Model Plugin. This plugin provides an enhanced ligament model as reported in:
Blankevoort L and Huiskes R (1991). Ligament-Bone Interaction in a Three-Dimensional Model of the Knee. Journal of Biomechanical Engineering. 113:263-269.
Please see the included documentation for a further description of the ligament model parameters.
