  • Webinar: NMSBuilder - Creating Subject-Specific Models for OpenSim

    On Dec 4th, 2012 Giordano Valente, from the NMS Physiome team at the Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli will describe and demo the NMSBuilder Software to generate subject-specific models for OpenSim.

    NMSBuilder is a MAF-based application developed within the NMSPhysiome project, which integrates the OpenSim APIs to provide a user-friendly tool package for biomedical data processing, developing OpenSim musculoskeletal models from subject-specific data, and leveraging OpenSim to perform dynamic simulations of movement. This application is primarily intended for biomechanics researchers with different backgrounds who use or wish to use OpenSim and deal with subject-specific scenarios at different levels in the modeling workflow of the musculoskeletal system.

    The webinar will present the software potential to the new users, helping them to get familiar with its capabilities, and will also include a problem-focused demo. The specific case study will show how to generate OpenSim models from anatomical surfaces segmented from lower-limb MRI, focusing on the relevance of subject-specific modeling.

    Interested to attend?
    We invite all the participants to download the alpha release of the NMSBuilder software from BiomedTown and start familiarizing with it:

    From the same link it is available a user’s manual, which describes the installation procedure and all NMSBuilder functionalities, and test data to get started with the software. Upcoming material will include getting-started and video tutorials.
