    Title: Investigating Jogging Biomechanics using the Full-Body Lumbar Spine Model
    Speakers: Ajit Chaudhari and Margaret Raabe, The Ohio State University
    Time: Thursday, June 23, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time

    DESCRIPTION


    The ability of a biomechanical simulation to produce results that can translate to real-life situations is largely dependent on the physiological accuracy of the musculoskeletal model. Properly modeling the motion and musculature of the trunk is necessary to most accurately estimate lower extremity and spinal loading during dynamic tasks, such as jogging. We recently developed the full-body lumbar spine (FBLS) model that includes a much more comprehensive representation of the trunk musculature and motion of the spine than previously available full-body OpenSim models. In this webinar, we will discuss how we utilized the open-source nature of OpenSim to build upon previously existing models and develop the FBLS model. We will also describe general procedures for validating newly developed musculoskeletal models and the steps we took to validate the FBLS model for upright tasks such as walking and jogging. Lastly, we will demonstrate how we applied the model to address the biomechanical consequences of running with core muscle weakness.

    The model can be downloaded from https://simtk.org/projects/fullbodylumbar. Read more about the model and the study in the associated publication “An Investigation of Jogging Biomechanics using the Full-Body Lumbar Spine Model: Model Development and Validation” (http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jbiomech.2016.02.046).

    Participation is free, but you must register in advance. Attendance is limited to 100. We also ask that you join the webinar 5 minutes early to orient yourself to the webinar interface.
