Musculoskeletal full-body models including a detailed thoracolumbar spine for children and adolescents aged 6–18 years

Stefan Schmid, Katelyn A. Burkhart, Brett T. Allaire, Daniel Grindle & Dennis E. Anderson
Currently available musculoskeletal inverse-dynamics thoracolumbar spine models are entirely based on data from adults and might therefore not be applicable for simulations in children and adolescents. In addition, these models lack lower extremities, which are required for comprehensive evaluations of functional activities or therapeutic exercises. We therefore created OpenSim-based musculoskeletal full-body models including a detailed thoracolumbar spine for children and adolescents aged 6–18 years and validated by comparing model predictions to in vivo data.
