History & Purpose:
The 3-D Analysis of Human Movement (3D-AHM) is a Technical Group of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB), and has a special interest in the 3-Dimensional biomechanical analysis of human movement. The purpose of the 3D-AHM group is to provide a scientific and technical forum for investigators of human motion. The group explores human movement analysis by improving the technologies (instruments, techniques, algorithms, methods, protocols, models, etc.) and by applying these technologies to biomechanics fields (basic studies of movement biomechanics and muscle physiology, musculo-skeletal modeling, movement in disability or disease, prosthetics and orthotics, rehabilitation engineering, outdoor-leisure, sport and elite performance, industrial design and ergonomics, etc.) In pursuit of this goal, it seeks the best scientific and social environments to generate further communication and contact between investigators in diverse areas and encourage discussions to cross the boundaries between scientific disciplines and specialties.
We are delighted to host the 14th International Symposium on 3D Analysis of Human Movement (3D-AHM), in Taipei, Taiwan from July 18 to July 21,2016. The 3D-AHM symposium has never been held in Asia before 2016. Asia is a continent rich in history and tradition. A 3D-AHM symposium in Taipei will be a unique opportunity for many researchers and students to participate in the symposium and experience the culture first-hand.
