BASES BIG Meeting 2021
25th March 2021
The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) Biomechanics Interest Group (BIG) 2021 Meeting, will be held (virtually) at Solent University Southampton on Friday 9 April.
free-to-attend event, in association with the National Biomechanics Day (NBD)
initiative, will be a celebration of all things biomechanics, “the breakthrough
science of the 21st century”
There will be dedicated sessions on both clinical and sports biomechanics to reflect the environments that biomechanists operate in. There will also be links made to associated disciplines of Sports Engineering, Strength and Conditioning, Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation.
conference theme, there will be a range of features including keynote lectures
and workshops from leading academics, researchers, and practitioners. View the event programme.
Keynote Speakers include:
Prof Janie L Wilson PhD
Professor of Surgery, Biomedical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering, McMaster University.
Dr Philip Graham-Smith
Head of Biomechanics and Innovation, Aspire Academy
Dr Martin Warner
