*Webinar: Predictive Simulations to Study the Plantarflexors in Gait
*Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 10:00am Pacific Daylight Time*The ankle
plantarflexor muscles play an important role in human walking. Deficits in
these muscles, such as weakness and contracture, occur commonly in gait
pathologies. In this webinar, Carmichael Ong from Stanford University will
describe a framework for predictive simulations that produces realistic
motions of walking at different speeds *de novo*, and discuss how
plantarflexor weakness and contracture can be modeled within such a
framework. The framework and workflow developed for this study can be
extended to study other mechanisms of gait pathologies. Learn more and

*Workshop on OpenSim Moco, a New Software Providing Optimal Control Methods
for Simulation Biomechanics*

*July 28, 2019ISB TGCS Symposium, Alberta, Canada*
The OpenSim team will be running a workshop at the 17th International
Symposium on Computer Simulation in Biomechanics
<https://isbweb.org/~tgcs/iscsb-2019/canmore.html> (TGCS 2019) to introduce
OpenSim Moco, a new software package for solving common problems in
simulation biomechanics, including tracking simulations, predictive
simulations, and muscle-redundancy problems. Moco leverages the OpenSim
software’s existing modeling capabilities and enables researchers without
numerical methods expertise to apply state-of-the-art optimal control
methods to their simulations. To participate in the workshop, register for
TGCS <https://isbweb.org/~tgcs/iscsb-2019/canmore.html> and check the box
for the OpenSim Workshop. Learn more.

*Wide-Range of Research at Recent Advanced User Workshop*
The NCSRR hosted 28 individuals from around the world at our Advanced User
Workshop from March 26-28, 2019. During the three-day event, individuals
worked closely with the NCSRR staff to advance their projects on a
wide-range of topics, including analysis of spinal deformity; wheelchair
propulsion, and exoskeleton design. Learn more about these and other
workshop projects.
