Dear colleagues

The early bird online registration has opened for the upcoming Biomechanics Conference.
"Biomechanics of the lower limb in health, disease and rehabilitation"
September 3-5th 2007,
hosted by Centre for Rehabilitation and Human Performance Research, University of Salford, England.


Early Bird Registration ends 30th June 2007.

The conference programme has been finalised and there will be 38 podium presentations and 40 poster presentations over the three days.

The keynote Speakers are:
1. Dr James Gage, Gillette Children's Hospital, St Paul Minnesota, USA - "xx years of clinical gait analysis"

2. Professor Thomas Andriacchi, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University, USA - "Knee injuries and osteoarthritis"

3. Professor Julie Steele, Biomechanics Research laboratory, University of Wollongong, Australia - "Biofeedback systems in Rehabilitation'

4. Dr Hugh Herr, Biomechatronics Lab, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA - "State of the art technology in human movement science"

5. Dr Arne Lundberg, Dept Orthopaedics, Karolinska Medical Institute, Sweden - "Why and when invasive methods can be necessary or irrelevant"

Three satellite events are also confirmed for the 6th September 2007:

1. Footwear - technology or psychology (http://www.ihscr.salford.ac.uk/CRHPR/footwear)

2. Introduction to Clinical Gait Analysis (http://www.ihscr.salford.ac.uk/CRHPR/gait)

3. Pattern Recognition in Biomechanics (http://www.ihscr.salford.ac.uk/CRHPR/pattern)
