[Opensim-announcement] Webinar on Control with Matlab, Astronaut Exercise Model, and Call for OpenSim Fellows

Announcements of the availability of OpenSim updates and resources opensim-announcement at simtk.org
Tue Oct 20 09:50:52 PDT 2015

*Webinar: Locus of Control: Are You in Control of Your Simulations?**Wednesday,
October 28, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time*
Misagh Mansouri (University of Pittsburgh) and Jeff Reinbolt (University of
Tennessee) will introduce a MATLAB/Simulink interface for rapidly and
easily designing control algorithms for OpenSim and discuss how they are
using the interface to understand coordinated and uncoordinated movement. Read
more and register.

*New Shared Resource: Simulation of ARED Squat Exercise*
BJ Fregly (University of Florida) and co-authors Christopher Fregly and
Brandon Kim have made the model and input files for producing a forward
dynamic simulation of the Advanced Resistive Exercise Device (ARED) squat
exercise available on their Simtk Project
<https://simtk.org/home/aredsimulation>. These files enable the
reproduction of the ground reaction forces and muscle moments computed in
their study “Computational Simulation of Muscle Loading during ARED Squat
Exercise on the International Space Station
<http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26473475>,” which was recently
published in the *Journal of Biomechanical Engineering*.
*Apply to be an OpenSim Fellow*
We encourage new applicants to the OpenSim Fellows Program
<http://www.stanford.edu/group/opensim/support/fellows.html>– an initiative
from the OpenSim project and the National Center for Simulation in
Rehabilitation Research. The goal of the Fellows Program is to cultivate
and engage a community of OpenSim experts who will collectively advance the
field of neuro-musculoskeletal modeling and simulation. Benefits include
invitations to the biennial OpenSim Symposium and listing in the OpenSim
consultants registry. Read more and learn how to apply
