We are pleased to announce the 1st UK Hand and Wrist Biomechanics meeting in Southampton, UK on the 16th September 2010.

This event will bring together researchers in all areas of biomechanics whose focus is research specifically looking at the hand and wrist. Topics represented will include computational modelling, kinematic measurement, sensory motor interaction and assessment of clinical interventions. The emphasis will be on clinical biomechanics, as well as the physiological and cognitive mechanisms underlying hand function.

The aim of this meeting will be to bring together hand and wrist biomechanists working in the UK and will be supported by three key centres: the School of Health Sciences - University of Southampton; the School of Health and Social Care - Glasgow Caledonian University; the Centre for Rehabilitation and Engineering Studies - University of Newcastle.

The first meeting will be hosted by the Rehabilitation & Health Technologies Group in the School of Health Sciences at the University of Southampton, and supported by the University Strategic Research Group in Health Technologies.

Registration is free and will be opening soon!

Four travel bursaries of up to 100 are available for students to attend. Please email me if you would like to apply for these. Only one bursary will be allocated per institution.
