The OpenSim project and the National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR) at Stanford invite you to join our next webinar, featuring Massimo Sartori, Ph.D. from The University of Twente.

Title: Human-machine Interfacing via Real-time Neuromechanical Modeling
Speaker: Massimo Sartori, Ph.D., University of Twente
Time: Thursday, July 18, 2019 at 10:00 am Pacific Time

The development of movement enhancement technologies requires the profound understanding of the neuro-mechanical processes underlying an individualís motor function, impairment, and recovery. A major challenge is the difficulty of accessing the in vivo neural activity underlying human movement concurrently with the resulting mechanical forces elicited at the musculoskeletal level. Key factors for addressing this challenge are the development of techniques for interfacing with the human nervous system and for the accurate decoding of the resulting motor function. Sartori and his team have been able to combine neuro-mechanical modelling and high-density electromyography in a translational way to address this challenge. In this webinar, Sartori will discuss his new methodologies and his applications to develop bioinspired technologies for restoring natural motor function. Sartori will focus on real-time model-based control of bionic limbs and robotic exoskeletons. He will show how this can be achieved by using OpenSim and the CEINMS open-source toolbox.
