Focused on the human musculoskeletal system but designed as a generic platform to address other engineering challenges that involve multi-scale modelling, unobservable states and variables and uncertainty. Find out more


Background

MultiSim is a £6.7 million EPSRC Frontier Engineering Award project based  at the University of Sheffield's Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine. This five year multidisciplinary project started on 1st September 2013 involving academics from the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Healthcare. MultiSim's vision is to develop a modelling framework focused on the h...

Moving from laboratory to real life conditions: influence on the assessment of variability and stability of gait

Researchers from MultiSim have been involved in a study about measuring gait analysis outside laboratory conditions. Gait analysis (i.e. measuring how someone walks) can be a handy tool to assess how well someo...

A new proxy measurement algorithm with applications to vertical ground reaction forces with wearable sensors

A proxy measurement is commonly used when direct measures of the outcome are unobservable and/or unavailable. This paper is a typical and successful application of proxy measurement strategy. In this particular...

Our goals and aspirations

Professor Marco Viceconti, Executive Director of Insigneo
“The long term vision of in silico medicine will not be fulfilled without a drastic improvement to our ability to model living organisms from the molecule to the whole body. MultiSim research program represents a quantum leap in this direction.”
Professor Damien Lacroix, Director of MultiSim
“MultiSim wants to bring the most advanced engineering techniques to the service of the patient by working on clinically-ready solutions for the personalisation of healthcare.”
