Gear Exchange


Flywheel has curated this collection of Gears, or ready-to-use plug-in applications, that automate routine tasks, including metadata extraction, classification, quality assurance, BIDS conversion, and full analytic pipelines. This library is made available through the contributions of Flywheel employees, customers and members of the broader research community.

These articles describe how to set up your environment and get started developing gears to run on Flywheel.

Gear Inventory

All gears available on the exchange can be found on the Flywheel Gear Exchange.
