Synthesizing human movement in computational neuro-mechanical models is a complex problem. In this study, we describe a predictive framework that combines computational models of neural, sensory and mechanical processes. Our proposed formulation facilitates the transition towards the design of a new class of bio-mimetic assistive devices that do not rely on explicit representations of task-specific motor control models.
