The Society was founded in February 1996 to be a forum for biomechanists from all variety of disciplines, or areas of study, within Australia and New Zealand, to meet and communicate. We are registered society and our ABN is 80 205 005 217.
There are many areas in biomechanics including, for example, motor control, cardiovascular and respiratory biomechanics, rehabilitation biomechanics, sport biomechanics, bone and hard tissue biomechanics, connective tissue biomechanics, orthopaedic biomechanics, and cellular and molecular biomechanics, to name just some. We hope that ANZSB will be a forum for all areas of biomechanics to exchange ideas and experience.
The main objectives of The ANZSB are to:
Facilitate communication amongst those actively engaged in the scientific study and application of biomechanics.
Provide a forum for those actively engaged in the scientific study and application of biomechanics to present their research.
Promote the dissemination and application of information derived from the scientific study of biomechanical theory.
