With every passing month, the biomechanics industry undertakes all-new projects requiring advanced motion capture technology. We get to experience more and more demonstrations of innovations first-hand now that the conference season is in full swing, with more upcoming events in August 2023 and beyond.
Next up in the mocap events calendar, we will be attending the American Society of Biomechanics 2023 conference hosted in Knoxville, Tennessee from August 8 to 11.
The American Society of Biomechanics fosters an inclusive community of like-minded researchers, with around 850 members representing the field across five main disciplines: biological sciences; exercise and sports science; health sciences; ergonomics and human factors; and engineering and applied science.
Furthering our understanding of human movement and recovery, the society brings together students, academics and clinicians in smaller regional events and an annual meeting, with the 2023 conference taking place in the historic creative hub of Knoxville. While exploring motion capture techniques and biomechanics trends in depth, timely topics of discussion will cover stroke rehabilitation, gait analysis, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, imaging for bone and joint health and much more.
The event hosts experts from universities around the United States, acting as an open forum to encourage the adoption of brand new mocap technologies by biomechanics professionals.
Featured keynotes come courtesy of mechanical engineering leaders from the University of Michigan, the Fischell Department of Bioengineering at the University of Maryland and Vanderbilt University. There are also opportunities to get interactive in practical workshops and investigate large-scale biomechanical data sharing, looking to predict and prevent injury, and highlight disease progression.
We are continually seeing projects that utilize mocap cameras and software to gain objective data to inform clinical decisions—data can identify patterns in movement-related conditions that can help researchers understand why injuries occur, leading to preventative solutions:
The 2023 conference promises to showcase more smart and practical uses of mocap, as well as a range of data-focused equipment looking to positively change every subsector of the biomechanics industry.
Steve and the team will be on hand to outline software tips and tricks for Cortex 9.2, including automating tasks through our Workflows panel and all-new digital integrations. We are particularly excited to share Cortex’s real-time feedback capabilities, which provide instant, custom cues to actors during motion capture to change their movements and improve performance.
We are looking forward to catching up with you at this year’s American Society of Biomechanics event in August 2023. Stop by booth #9 to say hello, and be sure to follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter for updates from the day.
