Welcome to the Neuromechanic wiki! This wiki provides documentation and support for the Neuromechanic software.
Neuromechanic is a collaborative effort to provide a musculoskeletal modeling tool geared towards predictive simulation of human and animal movement. The majority of the code was written by Nate Bunderson as part of his Doctoral research. It is currently maintained by:
- Nate Bunderson
- Jeff Bingham
- Thomas Burkholder
The software and research is supported by:
- Richard Nichols - Applied Physiology - Georgia Institute of Technology
Past support provided by:
- Thomas Burkholder - Applied Physiology - Georgia Institute of Technology
- Lena Ting - Biomedical Engineering - Georgia Institute of Technology & Emory University
