OpenSim Webinar: Tips and Tricks for Data collection, Scaling and Inverse Kinematics
The OpenSim Project and the National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR) at Stanford invite you to join our next webinar, featuring Jenny Yong and James Dunne from Stanford University.
Title: Tips and Tricks for Data collection, Scaling and Inverse Kinematics in OpenSim
Speaker: Jenny Yong and James Dunne, Stanford University
Time: Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time
Many users of OpenSim begin their research by collecting experimental motion capture data, including marker trajectories and ground reaction forces. In our lab, we have developed a set of best practices for collecting and importing this experimental data into OpenSim, scaling musculoskeletal models, and computing joint angles--all with the goal of producing accurately scaled models and joint kinematics. In this webinar, we will review these best practices and provide advice on ways to scale models, register markers, and perform inverse kinematic analysis in OpenSim. For example, we will discuss considerations for choosing an experimental marker set to improve scaling, and how the OpenSim scale tool can help you place model markers that match the experimental subject. We will conclude the webinar with an open discussion session to answer questions and get additional ideas from the community about best practices.
