ESMAC (European Society of Movement Analysis for Adults and Children)
The purpose of ESMAC is to stimulate and advance scientific knowledge, professional interaction and the exchange of ideas among society members relating to movement analysis in adults and children in clinical and research settings. There are several regional and international organisations within Europe who have a significant general interest in either biomechanics or clinical assessment of function. ESMAC is a forum where biomechanical, clinical and other issues relating specifically to the study of human movement can be discussed in detail amongst all the interested professionals. The Society was founded in 1992 in Oswestry, UK. The Society holds an annual scientific meeting which is normally preceded by an instructional course for gait analysis.
