In 1991, the first novel award was presented in recognition of excellence in pressure distribution research. The novel award recipient was determined by an international review committee from the fields of biomechanics and medicine. The novel award for pressure distribution measurement research continued since then to be endowed by novel and the best scientific manuscript in the field of load distribution measurement will receive the 2010 novel award with a prize of $5,000.00.
