  • OpenSim Webinar: Simulating Sit to Stand - Biomechanical Insights and Practical Tips

    The OpenSim Project and the National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR) at Stanford invite you to join our next webinar, featuring Robert Siston and Elena Caruthers from Ohio State University.

    DETAILS
    Title: Simulating Sit to Stand - Biomechanical Insights and Practical Tips
    Speaker: Robert Siston and Elena Caruthers, Ohio State University
    Time: Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time

    DESCRIPTION
    We invite you to sit down with us to learn about several things that should be considered when running OpenSim simulations. We will first discuss musculoskeletal modeling: how to choose the appropriate model for the motion you are analyzing, how to build a custom OpenSim musculoskeletal model if an appropriate model does not already exist, and why these steps are especially important if you are not simulating gait. We will then demonstrate how we used our own custom full body model to examine muscle forces during a sit to stand transfer. Along with our major findings from this study, we will share with you different techniques we used to validate and improve our results from static optimization. By the time you get up from your chair once the webinar is over, not only will you know what muscles are driving that motion, but you will walk away knowing a little more about modeling and simulation in OpenSim.


    Participation is free, but you must register in advance. We also ask that you join the webinar 5 minutes early to orient yourself to the webinar interface.
