OpenSim is a powerful tool for analyzing motion capture data with musculoskeletal simulations. However, analyzing data can be difficult especially for new users. With these pages we hope to provide a guide to help you plan and prepare for simulation in OpenSim. This broader view of using OpenSim should get you started on figuring out how to apply OpenSim to your specific research need. In addition, some of the more specific details that we found were often absent in other guides are included here.

We recommend going through Tutorials 1-3 on the Examples and Tutorials page to get a basic grasp on OpenSim before continuing.


These pages were written for OpenSim 3.3. However, much of the content should still apply to OpenSim 4.0 (at the time of writing still in beta).

OpenSim is supported by the Mobilize Center , an NIH Biomedical Technology Resource Center (grant P41 EB027060); the Restore Center , an NIH-funded Medical Rehabilitation Research Resource Network Center (grant P2C HD101913); and the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance through the Joe and Clara Tsai Foundation. See the People page for a list of the many people who have contributed to the OpenSim project over the years. ©2010-2024 OpenSim. All rights reserved.
