Sports Biomechanics

The International Society of Biomechanics in Sports is composed of members from all over the world with a common desire to study and understand human movement, especially as it relates to applied sports biomechanics.

The International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) was founded August 30, 1973 to promote the study of all areas of biomechanics at the international level, although special emphasis is given to the biomechanics of Human Movement. 

Australian and New Zealand Society of Biomechanics 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.
