BoB is the leading musculoskeletal analysis package which has been designed for ease of use and rigor in analysis making BoB ideal for both teaching and research. BoB is widely used in academia and industry with applications including product design, sporting performance, equipment design, man/machine interactions, vehicle design, gerontology, manual handling, ergonomics and many more. Bo’s capabilities include:
Easy data importing from
C3D (e.g. Vicon / CodaMotion / Qualisys / BTS)
HPF from Delsys
MVNx from Xsens
calc from Perception Neuron
BVH from Rokoko and others
User editable skeleton and muscle models
Default muscle model contains over 600 locomotor muscle units
Short learning curve makes BoB ideal for teaching
Advanced analysis capability makes BoB ideal for research
Close integration with MATLAB data and processing
Easy data exchange with MATLAB
User defined MATLAB Handle Graphics scripts
Extensive graphics display features
Calculation of ground reaction forces
Calculation of joint torques
Calculation of muscle forces, length and velocities

BoB and MATLAB
BoB is developed in MATLAB and inherits many of MATLAB’s features including 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 enabling the user access to use MATLAB Handle Graphics within BoB integrate user bespoke M-code.
BoB is accredited by the MathWorks Connections Program.
