*Diverse Projects Advanced through Recent OpenSim Advanced User Workshop at
At the end of March, a group of over 20 researchers gathered in person to
participate in a three-day OpenSim Advanced User Workshop at Stanford
University. Projects covered a range of topics in rehabilitation, including
assessing the accuracy of simulated hamstring muscle strain, estimating
spinal injury risk in rugby activities, evaluating robotic controllers for
targeted cycling therapy, and developing a new musculoskeletal model to
study lifting tasks. Learn more
the workshop projects and what the participants accomplished.

*Workshop in Belgium Brings Together International OpenSim Researchers *
In early February, a group of 29 scholars from 11 countries gathered in
person to participate in a three-day OpenSim workshop in Leuven, Belgium.
The workshop was led by a group of OpenSim Fellows and experts, including
Friedl De Groote, Ilse Jonkers, Massimo Sartori, Giordano Valente, Dimitra
Blana, and Mariska Wesseling. The workshop brought together OpenSim users
with a range of expertise levels working on diverse topics, including human
and animal biomechanics, sports injuries, and the design and evaluation of
robotic assistive devices. Learn more
the workshop.

*Complete a Short Survey about Funding Applications to Help NIH Assess
OpenSim's Impact*
*Responses Due Tomorrow (Tuesday, April 18)*
Please take 3-4 minutes to fill out a short survey
<https://stanforduniversity.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3D9XAjLwzDDYYO9> about
any funding you have applied for that has benefitted from OpenSim or from
NCSRR resources. This information will help the NIH assess the impact of
OpenSim and we will use your feedback to continue to improve our Center.
