Biomechanics of Bodies (BoB)

Biomechanics of Bodies (BoB) is a competitively priced biomechanical modelling package which contains a human musculoskeletal model. The model consists of rigid segments which represent the major anatomical components connected by physiologically appropriate joints and over 600 locomotor muscles.

BoB resides within the Matlab / Simulink environment enabling easy data export to Matlab christian replica replica christian louboutin pump , a common analysis environment in academia and industry. All of the analysis capability of Matlab / Simulink are available to BoB and all of your legacy models including control engineering, statistical analysis can interact with BoB. BoB provides the human element into your Matlab analysis.

The learning curve for BoB is very short and for existing Matlab / Simulink users it is almost zero, this makes it ideal for whole class teaching as well as for research.
