An Open Invitation to the Musculoskeletal Modeling Research Community

On behalf of my collaborators and the organizers of the 2010 ASME Summer Bioengineering Conference, I would like to invite you to participate in a "Grand Challenge Competition to Predict In Vivo Knee Loads" to be held at the upcoming conference June 16-20 in Naples, Florida (http://www.asmeconferences.org/sbc2010/).

Orthoload is pleased to advise the ISB community that  of a Public Database on Loading of Implants is available that provides free access to loads experienced by people with various joint impants in everday activities.

The ISB congress proceedings are going online. We have proceedings back until 2001 for ISB members to peruse.
