Dear Friends in the International Society of Biomechanics,

We are thrilled to announce the fourth National Biomechanics Day on April 10, 2019. With your participation NBD 2019 will introduce Biomechanics to an incredible number of high school students around the world. Please see the attached announcement about registering for NBD 2019 or please go directly HERE to register. Of course, you can hold your NBD event on any Spring or Summer day if April 10 does not work for you.

NBD has grown each year because of your enthusiastic participation. We now have the potential to revolutionize the impact of Biomechanics on society by showing our science in this synchronized, celebratory manner to thousands and thousands of young people. Please help us grow Biomechanics through our unique, worldwide and fun Biomechanics extravaganza. Through our unified outreach, we will make Biomechanics the 21st century’s Breakthrough Science.

Sincerely and with great enthusiasm,

Paul DeVita

Director, Biomechanics Laboratory and Leroy T. Walker Distinguished Professor of Kinesiology, East Carolina University

PS For your enjoyment, please see these videos from NBD 2018 events at the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab HERE and Rush University Medical Center HERE

    Congratulations to Prof. Ralph Müller from the ETH, Zurich, who was named the 2019 Muybridge Award winner.

    The Muybridge award is the most prestigious bestowed by the Society. It’s given for career achievements in biomechanics. It is named after Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904), who was the first to use cinematography for the study of human and animal movement.

    Prof. Müller is currently a Professor of Biomechanics at the Department of Health Sciences and Technology and heads the Laboratory for Bone Biomechanics at ETH Zürich in Switzerland. The research he has completed and is currently pursuing employs state-of-the-art biomechanical testing and simulation techniques as well as novel bioimaging and visualization strategies for musculoskeletal tissues. His approaches are now often used for precise phenotypic characterization in mammalian genetics, mechanobiology as well as tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

    Very well deserved award!

    We are excited to announce a new Working Group of the ISB, the Comparative Neuromuscular Biomechanics group (CNB)!

    The CNB aims to increase the visibility of comparative biomechanics and neuromechanics at the ISB, with a goal to accelerate cross-pollination between comparative and human biomechanics fields.

Welcome

The ISB promotes the study of all areas of Biomechanics at the International level.
