A Transfer Learning Framework for Creating Subject-Specific Musculoskeletal Models of the Hand

Principal Investigator: Jennifer Nichols

Co-PI: Joel Harley

Sponsor: NIH

Start Date: August 31, 2020

End Date: August 31, 2023

Amount: $600,000


This project utilizes machine learning methods to examine how subject-specific differences influence hand function and create subject-specific computer models from easy to obtain clinical data. Completion of this project will critically advance the ability to efficiently create subject-specific models of the hand and understand the biomechanical mechanism underlying hand force production.
