As we speed through the year, biomechanics conferences are well underway and buzzing with innovative ideas. Providing a welcome experience to network with researchers, practitioners, and clinicians face to face, industry events inspire the sharing of insightful perspectives and findings to anyone involved in biomechanics—or those looking to move into the sector.
Alongside advancements in motion capture technology, forward steps in sport product testing, robotics, medicine, gait analysis, rehabilitation, and data collection are all current trends fuelling discussion in 2023 and highlighting the outstanding work of leading and up-and-coming biomechanics academics.
After compiling a list of the year’s best industry events for biomechanics, we are looking forward to meeting valued colleagues old and new at these two US-based conferences in the near future.
When: May 30th – June 2nd
Where: Denver, CO, USA
This Tuesday sees the start of the ACSM Annual Meeting and World Congresses. The yearly conference, hosted by the American College of Sports Medicine, is a flagship event for sport fitness, healthcare, and treatment professionals.
We will be exhibiting at Booth #100, and we are again proud to sponsor the ACSM Biomechanics Interest Group’s Career Achievement Award, which recognizes the great achievements of upcoming scientists in the field of biomechanics.
The event is an invaluable opportunity for budding students and experts to network, share career advice and watch mocap applications for biomechanics in action. Attendees can immerse themselves in personal workshops, learn from over 1,500 case presentations, or join online to watch 13 hours of unique content and recorded live sessions.
We are excited to meet you and to explore the future of the industry in Denver very soon.
When: June 5th – 6th
Where: Omaha, NE, USA
Shortly after, our team will also be exhibiting at a dual event at the University of Nebraska Omaha.
Home to the Human Movement Variability Conference for its eighth edition, the annual event focuses on student-centred discussion regarding human movement research and is run by the university’s Center for Research in Human Movement Variability and the Department of Biomechanics.
The event space will also host the Great Plains Biomechanics Conference. Keynote speakers and podium sessions bring together around 100 academics, investigators, and scientists from around the world to explore progressive biomechanics topics including vascular mechanics, bioprinting and much more. Guest speakers include Dr. Beatrix Vereijken from Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Dr. Bill Baltzopoulos from Liverpool John Moores University.
These two Omaha-based biomechanics conferences are being held solely on premises and in-person for the first time since the pandemic, and we are keen to discuss motion capture for biomechanics with the wider community. Come say hi!
See you soon
With plenty more mocap industry events still to come in 2023, there are a range of excellent opportunities to learn new trends, applications and technologies that continue to move the biomechanics world forward.
