Planning Surgery with OpenSim OpenSim is free software used by scientists around the world to model humans and animals and understand how they move. This video gives an introduction to the project and describes how orthopaedic surgeons use modeling to help plan surgery for children with cerebral palsy. Contributors to the video are listed in the credits. For a list … Continue reading

OpenSim for Medicine. Design and Development of Medical Simulations

The paper describes the conceptual design and construction details of the University’s Second Life simulation island, Medical Centre and Emergency Room simulations. The paper also discusses the University’s involvement in the development of a National Virtual World Grid based upon the OpenSim platform (a collaboration between Otago University, Canterbury University, The University of Auckland, and Telecom New Zealand).

OpenSim for Medicine at

Description: OpenSim is a freely available, user extensible software system that lets users develop models of musculoskeletal structures and create dynamic simulations of movement. is the home of the software framework initiated and developed by Simbios, the National NIH Center for Biomedical Computing focusing on Physics-based Simulation of Biological Structures. represents a centralized organization, a place, where like-minded people … Continue reading
