**BoB/Research**

BoB/Research is the core BoB package containing the external interfaces, analytical functionality and graphics engine. BoB/Research calculates:

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 /Research has interfaces to the following formats:

C3D for motion, forceplates and EMG

CSV and Calc from Perception Neuron

HPF from Delsys for EMG signals

MVNX from Xsens

BVH in Biovision, Motion Builder and Rokoko variants

CSV of Euler joint angles

BoB/Research can import, manipulate and display objects from STL files.

BoB is developed in MATLAB and inherits many of MATLAB’s features including efficient solution algorithms, manipulation of plots and large data handling. However BoB users do not require a MATLAB licence.

All of BoB’s stored data files can be directly accessed by MATLAB. BoB provides access to MATLAB Graphics and the ability to integrate user bespoke M-code into BoB.

BoB is accredited by the MathWorks Connections Program.
