Welcome to BodyMech.nl

This site is created to share the results of the software project BodyMech at the department of rehabilitation medicine of the VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam.

The aim of the project was to create some structured software environment, in a context of education and small research projects, related to the analysis of human movement, starting with recording of bodymounted markers.

BodyMech was basically designed in 2000 and created in the years following. After being used and evaluated in many student projects of our department as well as at the Faculty of Human Movement Sciences of the VU University, we decided to share the results to the scientific community.


On BodyMech.nl you can find the basic ideas behind BodyMech and possibilities to download the Matlab based software sources. It is also possible to provide feedback and consult the FAQ section.


International presentation of BodyMech


The design of BodyMech will presented at the

Ninth International Symposium on the 3D analysis of Human Movement,

in Valenciennes, France at 28, 28 & 30 June 2006, website
