Hello novel Friends and Colleagues,

In continuing our partnership, novel and National Biomechanics Day are proud to announce this year’s loadsol® contest for NBD 2021!

NBD Remote Learning and Tele-Application loadsol® Contest

novel is accepting a 1-page abstract on how you would implement the loadsol® in your (virtual) NBD learning experience and how you would continue to use the loadsol® in virtual learningtelehealth, and/or research involving remote subject data collection.  We are looking for submissions which highlight the current obstacles of learning, clinical, and research data collection and how the loadsol, a mobile product, could be used to overcome these obstacles.  Be innovative – and be bold!

The winner will receive THREE pairs of loadsols® (any layout/size).

A full description of the loadsol® and its features, capabilities, and insole layouts may be found at https://www.novel.de/products/loadsol/

Contest details: Abstracts will be accepted until midnight CST Friday, March 5th. The recipient will be awarded based on the merit and originality of his/her/their abstract on these two criteria: NBD learning experience and the applied tele-application. The winner will be chosen by March 15th and 3 pairs of loadsols® (size and layout of recipient’s choosing) will be shipped for implementation prior to NBD.

Questions may be directed to novelinc@novelusa.com.  Contest announcement available at www.novelusa.com/news.
