# BoB/Teaching

BoB/Teaching is a package specifically designed for teaching biomechanics and bringing the subject to life.

BoB/Teaching contains a human musculoskeletal model and is pre-loaded with examples illustrating many biomechanical principles. BoB/Teaching has all of the analysis and graphics capabilities of BoB/Research, but cannot import new data.

The BoB/Teaching package also contains editable a worksheets for students to follow and complete. These exercises will guide the students through many biomechanical examples illustrating principles and applications.

BoB/Teaching enables every student to 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. BoB/Teaching has a short learning curve and includes many tutorial videos.

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. BoB/Teaching also includes a 3-dimensional viewer for an interactive interface and generates output as graphs, numeric data, videos and images to engage the students’ interest.
