The talk will be approximately 35 minutes, followed by an open Q&A session.

Talk Synopsis:

Hamner will discuss his study characterizing how muscles contribute to propulsion and support of the body mass center during human running. First, Hamner will detail how he used OpenSim tools to generate a subject-specific, muscle-driven simulation of running. Next he will explain how he analyzed the simulation to gain insights into muscle actions. To promote the utilization and acceptance of simulations in movement science, the simulation he will describe is freely available so that others may reproduce his results, perform additional analyses, and gain further insight into running dynamics.
