  • International Society of Biomechanics Sponsored Gait Lab

    Dear all,

    The International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) is proud to announce the
    completion of the second ISB sponsored Gait Analysis Laboratory (the
    first one established in Tanzania) at the Simon Bolivar University in
    Caracas-Venezuela. ISB acquired the equipment through donations from
    Motion Analysis (full camera system), AMTI (amplifiers, mounting rail,
    epoxy), Cleveland Clinic (forceplatforms), and Delsys (EMG system).
    Additionally, ISB was responsible for the installation of the equipment
    and training of the personnel. Dr. Susan D'Andrea from the Center of
    Restorative and Regenerative Medicine at VA Medical Centre-Brown
    University, traveled to Venezuela at the end of May to perform the
    installation and training.

    The CIO Latin America magazine, which is a scientific periodical, was
    present at the inauguration of the Gait Laboratory. They published an
    article about it that could be accessed through the following link:

    This new Gait Analysis Laboratory signifies a great accomplishment and
    asset not only to the biomechanics community in this country but also to
    the Venezuelan people in general. Prior to the establishment of this
    gait lab, there was only one clinical gait laboratory in the country to
    cover the needs of both their biomechanics research and diagnosis of
