Apply to Participate in Virtual Office Hours for Biomechanical Modeling or Machine Learning Research Questions

Applications due: April 9, 2021, 5 PM local time

Meeting dates: Weeks of April 19 and April 26, 2021
We are pleased to announce our April Virtual Office Hours to support researchers working with wearable sensors, video technology, and other modalities in rehabilitation research. These office hours are offered as part of the training efforts of our Restore<https://restore.stanford.edu/> and Mobilize<https://mobilize.stanford.edu/> Centers. We will have two tracks: 1) Biomechanical modeling with OpenSim<https://opensim.stanford.edu/> and IMUs<https://simtk-confluence.stanford.edu/display/OpenSim/OpenSense+-+Kinematics+with+IMU+Data> or video, and 2) Machine learning, including video analysis. All phases of a research project are supported, such as formulating a research question, choosing and planning appropriate methods, and addressing issues with carrying out the study. We welcome and encourage individuals to apply as a team, if applicable.

MATLAB Toolbox for Automatic Generation of Personalized OpenSim Models
Luca Modenese from Imperial College London and Jean-Baptiste Renault from Aix-Marseille University have recently released STAPLE (Shared Tools for Automatic Personalized Lower Extremity modeling), a MATLAB toolbox to automatically create kinematic and kinetic models of the lower extremity using subject-specific bone geometries segmented from medical images. Numerous examples of use and testing datasets are available. Read publication<https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0021929020306102?via%3Dihub> | Download stable release<https://simtk.org/projects/msk-staple> | Access code development via GitHub <https://github.com/modenaxe/msk-STAPLE>

Resources Available for OpenSim-Based Class Project and Jeopardy!-Inspired Exam Review
The Biomechanics of Movement textbook's Classroom site<https://simtk-confluence-homeworks.stanford.edu/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=5537857> hosts homework problems and other materials for teaching biomechanics. This includes a number of OpenSim-related resources. The site has just made available:

  *   A Jeopardy!-inspired exam review for an advanced undergrad/early grad student course in biomechanics, from Kat Steele at University of Washington
  *   Materials for a class project that guides students through two different approaches for using OpenSim to predict in vivo medial and lateral knee contact forces, from B.J. Fregly at Rice University. Included are instructions, experimental data, setup files, the OpenSim model, and a grading rubric.

These two resources are available to instructors only, but the site's collection of homework problems<https://simtk-confluence-homeworks.stanford.edu/display/BMH/Homework+Problems> are available to students and instructors.
