View Full Version : Biomechanical analysis within Matlab/Simulink

Biomechanics of Bodies (BoB) is the human musculo-skeletal system within Matlab / Simulink.

BoB consists of 36 skeletal segments and 666 locomotor muscle units. In inverse dynamics mode BoB can calculate joint torques, muscle loading distribution and joint contact forces. In forward dynamics mode BoB can calculate motion due to muscle activation and external forces. BoB also has extensive post-processing and graphics capabilities.

As BoB resides totally within the Matlab environment there is a minimal learning curve required for existing Matlab users making BoB particularly suitable for teaching. Additionally BoB can be integrated into existing Simulink models which require a human component.

A Mathworks webinar illustrating BoB and its applications can be seen at:
