Modeling & Simulation

NCSRR's OpenSim is freely available modeling and simulation software used for advancing the understanding of movement and designing treatments for movement abnormalities. The software is available on the National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR) website where researchers and modelers can find a wide array of resources to improve their OpenSim knowledge and skills.

NCSRR also offers OpenSim Moco Virtual Office Hours, a new toolkit for solving musculoskeletal optimal control problems, including both tracking simulations and predictive simulations. Learn more about how to use this service.

The NCSRR's OpenSim Fellows Program cultivates and engages a community of OpenSim experts who collectively advance the field of neuro-musculoskeletal modeling and simulation. OpenSim Fellows conduct transformative biomechanics research and lead the charge in its translation to medicine, robotics, graphics, and other areas that enhance human health. OpenSim Fellows also help grow and sustain the modeling and simulation community by: 1) training the next generation of researchers; 2) encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration; 3) sharing models, data, and software; 4) advocating for model validation; and 5) demonstrating simulation best practices.
