Objectives of the Group

The International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) Technical Group on the 3-D Analysis of Human Movement provides a forum for the discussion of all issues relating to the measurement of human movement in three dimensions. This is achieved primarily through the organization of international symposia, typically every second year. In addition, the Group has sponsored the publication of special issues of the journal Human Movement Science.

History of the Group

The Group primarily owes its existence to the efforts of Paul Allard, who organized the first symposium in Montréal in 1991, and helped with the organization of the symposia in Poitiers, Stockholm and Grenoble. The formation of the group was also strongly supported by the late Herman Woltring. The International Society of Biomechanics recognized the organization as a Technical Group in 1995. The first organizational meeting was held in Grenoble on July 1, 1996. A more detailed history is also available.
