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

Application deadline: February 4, 2022, 5 PM local time

We are pleased to announce we will be holding Virtual Office Hours on February 18-24, 2022, to support researchers working with wearable sensors, video technology, and other modalities in rehabilitation research. 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 relevant.

Multi-segment Foot Model Validated Using Biplanar Videoradiography

Past OpenSim Visiting Scholar Jayishni Maharaj and colleagues have developed a multi-segment foot model with seven degrees-of-freedom that results in more accurate kinematics than a conventional six-degree-of-freedom model. Comparisons were made against biplanar videoradiography measurements for walking and running. By utilizing joint constraints, the model also enables the quantification of motion in the subtalar joint.  A description of the model and its validation were published in Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering.
