OpenSim Workshop at the North American Congress on Biomechanics, August 5, 2008

OpenSim is freely available to the biomechanics community and enables advanced modeling and simulation of human and animal movement.  It provides software for inverse dynamics analysis and forward dynamic simulation and analysis of computer models of the musculoskeletal system.  OpenSim version 1.0 was introduced at the ASB meeting last August.  Since then, several hundred people have begun to use the software for research and teaching.  The hands-on workshop at NACOB will allow you to get simulations running on your computer and to analyze them to understand muscle function.  You can download the software at and get started with the tutorials before the workshop.

Registration is now closed. We will send updates and instructions to those who registered.
