This short communication presents the gait1415+2 musculoskeletal model, that has been developed in OpenSim to describe the lower-extremity of a human subject with transfemoral amputation wearing a generic lower-limb bone-anchored prosthesis. The model has fourteen degrees of freedom, governed by fifteen musculotendon units (placed at the contralateral and residual limbs) and two generic actuators (one placed at the knee joint and one at the ankle joint of the prosthetic leg). Even though the model is a simplified abstraction, it is capable of generating a human-like walking gait and, specifically, it is capable of reproducing both the kinematics and the dynamics of a person with transfemoral amputation wearing a bone-anchored prosthesis during normal level-ground walking. The model is released as support material to this short communication with the final goal of providing the scientific community with a tool for performing forward and inverse dynamics simulations, and for developing computationally-demanding control schemes based on artificial intelligence methods for lower-limb prostheses.
