Why should you use BoB? > BoB is easy to use with a short learning curve. > BoB/Teaching is a version of BoB specifically designed for teaching biomechanics at undergraduate and Masters levels. > BoB has menus in many languages. > BoB has a broad range of analysis functions including point position/vel/acc, segmental orientation, anatomical trajectories, centre of mass position, body energy/power, velocity vectors, joint angles, joint ranges of motion, joint torques, ground reaction forces, joint contact forces, muscle forces, muscle lengths, muscle contraction rates, muscle energy/power. > BoB has a large library of on-line videos to guide users through BoB’s capabilities. > BoB can model the interaction of many people at the same time. > BoB has excellent graphical capabilities including a 3-dimensional viewer, user selected skeletons and mannequins, user defined plotting styles and visualisation aids. > BoB’s functions are validated through publications in leading academic journals. > BoB can show synchronised videos and EMG. > BoB is supported by a dedicated post-sales support team. > BoB users can write their own code in MATLAB to perform their own specific analysis. > BoB users can use MATLAB Handle graphics to display object with the BoB environment. > MATLAB users can directly read BoB data files.
BoB is developed in MATLAB and inherits many of MATLAB’s features including efficient solution algorithms, manipulation of plots and large data handling.
All of BoB’s stored data files can be directly accessed by MATLAB. The BoB package contains BoB in P-code enabling BoB to be run within the MATLAB environment, access to MATLAB Handle Graphics and the ability to integrate user bespoke M-code into BoB.
BoB is accredited by the MathWorks Connections Program.
