BoB/Teaching is a package specifically designed for teaching biomechanics and bringing the subject to life.
BoB/Teaching is pre-loaded with examples illustrating many biomechanical principles and has all of the analysis and graphics capabilities of BoB. BoB/Teaching is at a price-point where every student can have a musculoskeletal model on their own PC or Mac.

BoB/Teaching is a self-contained package for students of biomechanics enabling them to investigate, observe and learn biomechanical analysis. The package contains examples of biomechanical activities ranging from simple, idealised movements to real-life motion captured trials but cannot import new data.
BoB/Teaching encourages the student to experiment, enquire and gain a deep understanding of the principals employed in biomechanical analysis with a very short learning curve and minimal supervision.
BoB/Teaching contains all of the sophisticated graphics and analysis functions of BoB/Research including a 3-dimensional viewer and generates output as graphs, numeric data, videos and images – click hereto see the features (and scroll down).
The BoB/Teaching package also contains editable a worksheets of questions for students to follow and complete. These exercises will guide the students through many biomechanical examples illustrating principles and applications.
BoB/Teaching can analyse and display:
Joint range of motion
Distance/angles between points
Torques at joints
Externally applied force
Ground reaction forces
Joint contact forces
Total muscle energy/power
Muscle torque decomposition
The BoB/Teaching package contains examples of:
Static hand weight
Single foot balance
Moving hand weight
Jogging with EMG
Cycling with EMG
Gait with EMG
BoB/Teaching is written in MATLAB (no MATLAB licence is required) which will be a familiar environment for many students.
