Welcome to SCONE

SCONE is free and open-source software for predictive simulation of human and animal motion.

With SCONE, you can optimize musculoskeletal models to perform specific tasks, according to high-level objectives such as walking speed and energy efficiency.

SCONE supports models from OpenSim 3, OpenSim 4 and Hyfydy, which delivers a 100x speedup over OpenSim.

SCONE includes a Python API, designed and streamlined for machine learning applications.

SCONE is available for Windows, Linux and macOS.
