National Biomechanics Day

It’s that time of year again! We’re starting to plan for National Biomechanics Day 2018. Last year we had over 50 students from local area high schools come and learn more about biomechanics.

We have a number of labs that are devoted to some form of biomechanics science, ranging from understanding how our joints move differently with injuries or diseases to designing prosthetics, assistive devices, or even tissues to restore joint function. For NBD, we are planning some cool demonstrations and interactive lab tours to showcase what we are doing in the field of Biomechanics and ways our work can impact the lives of a variety of patients. The students will get to meet and talk with professors and university students, and we hope they will leave with an understanding and excitement about what Biomechanics is and perhaps even be inspired to pursue Biomechanics in their future education and careers.

For more information about the event in general, please check out the American Society of Biomechanics’ page.

For information on our event, to be held on April 11, stay tuned here. The event will begin mid-morning (9 or 10) and run until early afternoon.
