This hands-on workshop is held at the Summer School on Neurorehabilitation Engineering for Clinical Practice (September 15-20, 2013, Elche, Spain).

The workshop will introduce novel neuromusculoskeletal modeling methodologies that allow predicting the dynamics of the musculoskeletal system as controlled by outputs from the neural system ( A live DEMO will show real-time EMG-driven musculoskeletal modelling as a means to estimate musculoskeletal dynamics on one healthy individual.

The workshop will then introduce the software package OpenSim ( In this, participants will be introduced to the theory behind simulation of musculoskeletal movement in OpenSim, along with the framework of the software architecture and functions. This will be followed by a hands-on example on how to use the OpenSim C++ API to create biped models of locomotion from ground up.
