It is with great pleasure that we announce the 2nd Edition of the Lisbon Foot & Ankle Clinical Biomechanics Course, to be organized in September 8th, at the Human Kinetics Faculty, Lisbon University (Portugal).

This year's edition is dedicated to Sports Biomechanics.

20/09/2018 to 21/09/2018

Most human activities, including sports, are becoming more and more technological. Engineering in general and Information Technology in particular are important in the support for many activities directly or indirectly related to sport sciences, including improvement of physical activities, sports medicine, biotechnology and nutrition, sports management, and all other application areas in sports. This congress intends to be a meeting point for both academics, sport professionals and practitioners to exchange ideas and develop synergies.

Dear members of ESMAC, Colleagues, Friends

I am honored to welcome you at the 27th Annual Meeting of ESMAC in Prague. City in the heart of Europe with a history dating back to the 9th century. Historic center with a unique panorama of Prague Castle, the largest ancient castle complex in the world. The metropolis with one of the oldest universities in the world was the former seat of the emperors of Holy Romain Empire. It will now host a community of scientists, engineers, technicians, physiotherapists, orthopaedic surgeons and many others who are interested in human motion analysis at a multidisciplinary conference.

The whole 6-day program will take place at the Prague Congress Center, a few minutes from the Old Town center, with good public transport accessibility.

During the Pre-Conferennce program (24-26 September 2018), you will be able to attend the three-day Gait Course, which will give participants a unique opportunity to break into principles of Gait analysis with an emphasis on clinical interpretation.

Those who are interested in Cerebral palsy can visit the Satellite symposium dealing with this topic.

During the Main Conference (27-29 September 2018). You can look forward to lectures by invited speakers and many other oral presentations and poster sessions that cover the entire spectrum of motion analysis.

Finally, an interesting social program will be prepared including a  Welcome reception, Gala dinner, Charity run and Guided tour around Prague castle that will take you to the metropolis center and help to establish new contacts and bring together young researchers and experts in the field.

Looking forward to see you all in Prague.

Best wishes
Karel Urbášek

Evelina London Gait Analysis Course 2018

Learning to walk and maintaining walking ability are important aspects of human function. Gait analysis is the study of human walking. Many universities, hospitals and private institutions have instrumentation to measure walking but there are few courses available to teach clinicians and researchers the developmental, neurological and muscular physiology and mechanics of walking to help them interpret their data.

Learning outcomes

  • Relevant knowledge of the development of human walking across the lifespan
  • An understanding of key biomechanical and clinical measurement concepts
  • Technical analysis of gait and associated data
  • Ability to interpret data according to an opinion-evidence model

The course is suitable for professionals who have a clinical interest in understanding movement pathology. These professionals might include: physiotherapists, biomechanists, orthotists, orthopaedic surgeons, rehabilitation physicians, paediatricians and neurologists. The course is suitable for individuals holding training and more senior posts.
