Since the Senseback project has started, we have obtained a detailed dataset of musculoskeletal anatomy, including intrinsic muscles of the hand, and will shortly begin converting that dataset to the OpenSim modelling format.

In closely-related work, our group has recently published a paper on the feasibility of using muscle and other signals to control multiple degrees of freedom simultaneously in upper limb prostheses. The study, published in Journal of Electromyography and Kinesiology, used a virtual reality environment to assess control in able-bodied volunteers performing goal-directed reaching movements.

More details to appear.
