ABOUT

biomechZoo is an open-source toolbox that provides tools and graphical user interfaces to help users process, analysis, and visualize biomechanics data. 

We aim to help researchers and clinicians new to programming or biomechanics to quickly perform research using customizable workflows. Advanced users are encouraged to contribute additional functionality to the project. Students may benefit from using biomechZoo as a learning tool. 

It is hoped that the toolbox can play a role in advancing research in the movement sciences. 

biomechZoo is available online under the Apache 2.0 license and can be run in Matlab for Windows / Mac OS.

Philippe C Dixon (PhD)

 

Dr. Dixon’s research focuses on the mechanics of walking. Through this work, he aims to better understand the adaptations required for populations with restricted mobility to successfully navigate both the natural and built environments. Dr. Dixon is the lead consultant and coder for the biomechZoo toolbox project. Dr. Dixon completed his undergraduate degree in Physics and his master's degree in Biomechanics at McGill University. He holds a doctorate in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Oxford and is currently a research fellow at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health and the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety.
