Abstract

Subject-specific models of the musculoskeletal system are capable of accurately estimating function and loads and show promise for clinical use. However, creating subject-specific models is time-consuming and requires high levels of expertise. To address these issues, we have developed the open source Musculoskeletal Atlas Project (MAP) Client software. The MAP Client provides a user-friendly interface for creating musculoskeletal modelling workflows using community-created plug-ins. In this paper, we discuss the design of the MAP Client, its plug-in architecture and its integration with the Physiome Model Repository. We demonstrate the use of MAP Client with a subject-specific femur modelin..
