For the first time an Educational Workshop on Dynamic Load Distribution Measurement (DLDM) was organized. The workshop took place in Natal (Brazil) - between the Footwear Biomechanics Symposium and the ISB Congress (3-4 August 2013). The event was jointly organized by Professor Isabel Sacco, Laboratorio Biomecânica do Movimento e Postura Humana da Faculdade de Medicina da USP, University of Sao Paulo (LABIMPH - USP), her team (Cristina Sartor, Alessandra Matias, Ricky Watari, Licia Cacciari) and Axel Kalpen from novel in Munich.

We were pleased to welcome more than 60 participants from South America, mostly from Brazil. The workshop was held in Portuguese and English.

The special highlights were the keynote lectures delivered by Matthew Nurse, Director, NIKE Sport Research Lab, Prof. Deyse Borges Koch, Laboratório de Biomecânica, Universidade do Estado de Santa Catarina (UDESC) and Professor Dieter Rosenbaum, Director, Movement Analysis Lab, Institute of Experimental Musculoskeletal Medicine, University Hospital Münster who spoke about their long-term experiences in biomechanics research and their findings.

Axel Kalpen and Isabel Sacco & her team explained the sensor physics and biomechanics as well as the scientific software analysis of load distribution measurement and many various applications on the human body.

Besides the scientific part, the DLDM workshop provided opportunity for networking so that participants could talk to each other and make new contacts.
We were very pleased about the positive feedback.
