West Point Foot Structure and Function Research Team - Another Successful Collection of Class of 2021 Cadets!

For the past five years novel has had the opportunity to be part of the research team collecting foot structure and function variables on the incoming cadets at West Point. This year another 1,200 cadets participated in the research collected in less than 8 hours. Seven emed-x systems and two emed-xl systems and a team volunteers from novel, HSS, Temple Univ, US Military Academy, and the New York College of Podiatric Medicine all worked together to collect the emed and foot structure parameters

Nine emed platforms collected 1,200 cadets in just 8 hours!

We are excited to have the opportunity to support NBD 2017.
A message from the NBD organizing team lead by Paul DeVita, Ph.D., Past-President of the American Society of Biomechanics and founder of National Biomechanics Day: "Our long term goal is to foster the development of Biomechanics as a standard component in high school curricula around the world. Our immediate goal is to create synchronized celebrations of Biomechanics among all participating labs and other biomechanics facilities, a Biomechanics Open-House. We invite high school students and teachers to contact nearby NBD participants (see the Participants link for a regional) and let them know you want to participate. NBD will be fun, exciting, and enjoyable science for everyone. In fact, our theme this year is, “Science Meets Fun on National Biomechanics Day.” Fantastic!"
