Canadian Society for Biomechanics / Société canadienne de biomécanique (CSB/SCB) was formed in 1973. The CSB is an Affiliated Society with the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB).
The purpose of the Society is to foster research and the interchange of information on the biomechanics of human physical activity.
Biomechanics research is being performed more and more by people from diverse disciplinary and professional backgrounds. CSB/SCB is attempting to enhance interdisciplinary communication and thereby improve the quality of biomechanics research and facilitate application of findings by bringing together therapists, physicians, engineers, sport researchers, ergonomists, and others who are using the same pool of basic biomechanics techniques but studying different human movement problems.
Famous quotes containing the words canadian and/or society:
“Were definite in Nova Scotiabout things like ships ... and fish, the best in the world.”
—John Rhodes Sturdy, Canadian screenwriter. Richard Rossen. Joyce Cartwright (Ella Raines)
“Hardly ever can a youth transferred to the society of his betters unlearn the nasality and other vices of speech bred in him by the associations of his growing years. Hardly ever, indeed, no matter how much money there be in his pocket, can he ever learn to dress like a gentleman-born. The merchants offer their wares as eagerly to him as to the veriest swell, but he simply cannot buy the right things.”
—William James (18421910)
