BIOMECHANICS

  • Canadian Society for Biomechanics (CSB) – CSB/SCB enhances interdisciplinary communication to improve the quality of biomechanics research and facilitate application of findings by bringing together therapists, physicians, engineers, sport researchers, ergonomists and others who are using the same pool of basic biomechanics techniques but studying different human movement problems.
  • International Society of Biomechanics – Welcome to the home page of the ISB. Here you will find information about the ISB, biomechanical software and data contributed by members, and pointers to other sources of biomechanics-related information.

REHAB INFORMATION AND RESOURCES

  • Health Information Resource Unit – Studies the phenomenology of health information, develops information tools to support evidence-based medicine and evaluates informational health interventions. Refer to headings: Contents, Projects.

REHAB RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

  • Institute for Rehabilitation Research and Development (Ottawa, Canada) – Multidisciplinary rehabilitation research.
  • IRRD Computer Applications Group – The Computer Applications Group (CAG) is part of Institute for Rehabilitation Research and Development at The Rehabilitation Centre (Ottawa). The purpose of this research and development group is to investigate and apply computer related technology to rehabilitation. Information can be accessed on the CAG members, current projects, and completed projects.
  • Toronto Rehab – Research and development activities
  • The National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) – Part of the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) in the U.S. Department of Education. NIDRR contributes to the independence of persons of all ages who have disabilities by seeking improved systems, products, and practices in the rehabilitation process. It does this through grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements with universities, Indian tribes, research groups, nonprofit organizations, some profit-making companies, and individuals. Recipients of funds range from graduate student fellows to university consortia.

REHAB ENGINEERING

  • ICORR – International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics.
  • Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME) – The IBME is a research institute within the University of New Brunswick, in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. The Institute’s mandate is to further education, research and community service in biomedical engineering.
  • Ottawa Rehabilitation Engineering Service – Rehabilitation Engineering is a specialized service of the Institute for Rehabilitation Research and Development (The Rehabilitation Centre, Ottawa) that uses engineering knowledge and technology to improve the quality and cost effectiveness of rehabilitation.
  • REHABTech – Rehabilitation engineering at Monash University, Australia.
