June 10, 2019

The ISB Working Group in Motor Control hosted their 9th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics on May 28th, 2019 in conjunction with the 66th Annual Meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) in Orlando, Florida.

The symposium featured internationally distinguished researchers in the field of Motor Control and Biomechanics (see flyer for details), including:

  • Dr. Robin Queen, Virginia Tech, USA. Using biofeedback to reduce second ACL injury risk.
  • Dr. Scott Landry, Acadia University, Canada. Biomechanical and neuromuscular analyses of young athletes.
  • Dr. Cara Lewis, Boston University, USA. Hip morphology and movement patterns: rethinking hip pain in athletes.
  • Dr. Daniel Cobian, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA. Abnormal quadriceps activation patterns and lower extremity biomechanics in elite collegiate athletes post-ACL reconstruction.
  • Dr. Deanna Gates, University of Michigan, USA. The influence of muscle fatigue and pain on multi-joint movements.
  • Mrs. Alessandra Matias, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Not all forefoot striking is equal.

We would like to extend a special thank-you to ISB for providing the 2nd Motor Control Group Student Award in the amount of $500 USD for a student to participate and present in the symposium, and congratulations to the winner!

A special thank-you to the De Luca Foundation (DLF) for their financial assistance in supporting the symposium.

The next symposium will be held on August 2nd in conjunction with ISB/ASB 2019, and more events are under planning for 2020.
