Webinar: Which Simulation Pipeline Should I Use? An Overview of Common Workflows
April 29, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Saving Time
We invite you to join us for a webinar featuring Carmichael Ong from the OpenSim team at Stanford University. In this webinar, Dr. Ong will describe different simulation pipelines used to understand how movement is coordinated:  inverse dynamics, static optimization computed muscle control, forward dynamics, shooting methods, reinforcement learning, and direct collocation. He will compare and contrast the pipelines and provide case studies to illustrate how to select a pipeline.

Diverse Research and Methods Advanced at Recent Workshop
Twenty-three individuals from around the world joined us virtually for our Advanced User Workshop from March 24-26, 2020. During the three-day event, individuals worked closely with the NCSRR staff through Zoom and Slack to advance their projects.

Many of the projects utilized the recently released OpenSim Moco<http://opensim.stanford.edu/moco> software, taking advantage of its ability to predict motion and optimize parameters. Examples of Moco-based projects include predicting the dynamics of knee alignment surgery; studying perturbations to standing balance; developing a framework for optimizing ankle sprain prevention; and analyzing shoulder movements after reverse total shoulder arthroplasty.

Other projects applied a traditional OpenSim pipeline to their research, for example, to design a hypogravity exercise device or understand chronic ankle instability. And some projects were developing new tools and methods, such as integrating the EZC3D toolbox with OpenSim or creating a pipeline to use tensiometer data to create high-fidelity subject-specific knee models.
