12:00 – 14:00 From imaging to modelling: Tips and tricks – Tutors (John Hutchinson, Taylor Dick, Suzanne Cox, and Jonas Rubenson)
This tutorial will walk through one workflow for creating musculoskeletal models “from scratch” using existing 3D image data (polygonal meshes). You will learn how to create skeletal anatomical coordinate systems more objectively for establishing joint axes, to semi-automatically place 3D muscle paths relative to these joints, estimate muscle model parameters and body segment inertial properties, and then exporting complete model files created by this process. Finally, the influence of such parameters on the simulation results will be showcased and discussed. OpenSim software will be used in this tutorial, and sample files will be provided.
