A Giant Leap for Open Source Simulation

by Katherine Miller, biomedicalcomputationalreview.org

Researchers can now create musculoskeletal models and simulations on an open source platform. In August, Simbios researchers released OpenSim 1.0. This freely available software can, in about 20 minutes, create 3D simulations of human movement at a level of detail and accuracy that just a few years ago would have taken weeks or months.
