The NMS Physiome project is increasing visits to its main NMSPhysiome output: an open-source tool chain for the processing of patient data and simulation of the musculo-skeletal conditions. Visit the software page to reach 1500 visits!!!
NMSBuilder is a user-friendly tool package for developing OpenSim musculoskeletal models from patient-specific biomedical data and for leveraging OpenSim to perform dynamic simulations of movement. The NMSBuilder beta release is now available to be downloaded for free.
NMSPhysiome have had over 1000 visits to its project since the beta release of NMSBuilder. Let's help them to reach 1500 visits before the end of the month!
NMS Physiome is a project funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) to promote a more organic cooperation in the development of Predictive, Personalised and Integrative musculoskeletal medicine, as part of the European Union’s Virtual Physiological Human initiative.
The project aims to integrate communities, technologies and services developed in two large research projects: VPHOP (Osteoporotic Virtual Physiological Human) funded by the European Commission, and SIMBIOS (Center for Physics-based Simulation of Biological Structures) funded by the US National Institutes of Health.
VPHOP, formed by a consortium of 21 partner institutions led by Prof Marco Viceconti (University of Sheffield), has developed the next generation of health technologies to fight osteoporosis. As part of this endeavour, the personalised modelling of the patient’s neuro-musculo-skeletal system is essential.
Led by Stanford University, the project provides infrastructure, software, and training to help biomedical researchers understand biological form and function as they create novel drugs, synthetic tissues, medical devices, and surgical interventions. The cluster of projects connected to SIMBIOS is investigating a wide scale of biological structures - from molecules to organisms. Stanford University’s Scott Delp, a co-Principal Investigator of SIMBIOS, and his team focus on the accurate modelling and simulation of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system.
