What is BoB?
BoB (Biomechanics of Bodies) is a biomechanical modelling package containing a human musculoskeletal model providing quantitative, objective information with an easy to use and intuitive interface.
BoB combines a short learning curve with deep analytical functionality making it ideal for commercial applications, academic research and teaching. BoB enables the calculation of muscle forces and joint contact loads, ground reaction forces, the calculation of anatomical trajectories, centre of mass trajectories, energy dissipation, power requirements, ergonomic assessment and EMG integration. BoB enables the user to model an individual or a population sample with a user editable skeleton and muscle model. BoB also possesses extensive visualisation capabilities and can output tabulated data, graphical information, illustrations and videos.
BoB has been downloaded by hundreds of commercial organisations and academic institutions worldwide – BoB is available in English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Lithuanian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish.
