OpenSim Workshop at GCMAS, March 10, 2009

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, approximately 2000 people have begun to use the software for research and teaching. The hands-on workshop at GCMAS allowed participants to get simulations running on their computer and to analyze them to understand muscle function.
