Building on the success of previous meetings, Staffordshire University is pleased to announce the 13th Staffordshire Conference on Clinical Biomechanics (SCCB) at the University Campus, Stoke on Trent, UK. The 3-day conference will be held from the 23th to the 25th of April, 2015. It will provide a forum for information dissemination on lower limb clinical biomechanics and will facilitate discussion on research and case studies in this field via plenary sessions.  

In addition to lower limb biomechanics and footwear research, this year's conference will focus on biomechanics of the at risk foot (with a focus on Diabetes) on the first day and the musculoskeletal biomechanics of the lower limb and footwear on the second day. The keynote speakers will outline the latest developments in the area of pathomechanics and pathology of the foot at risk and highlight the role of technology in understanding biomechanical principles with a focus on diagnosis and management of patients.

Two of the keynote speeches will be held by two of our users: Dr Claudia Giacomozzi, a senior research scientist at the Department of Technology and Health (Section of Biomechanics and Rehabilitative Technologies) of the Italian National Institute of Health (ISS) and Dr Julie Stebbins from the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences of the University of Oxford, UK.

novel will participate in the conference with a booth, and we will sponsor a preconference workshop on „Plantar Pressure Assessment“. The workshop will cover basic concepts in plantar pressure and ground reaction force measurements along with an introduction to the technologies used for plantar pressure assessment. Whilst providing an overview on regulatory issues, it will particularly focus on the applications of these technologies for use within a diabetic foot clinic. The workshop will be facilitated by Dr Claudia Giacomozzi and Gabriella Atzori.

We would be happy to welcome you at this conference providing plenty of opportunities to discuss our latest load distribution measurement technology.
