Welcome to Seville and to the 25th Annual Scientific meeting of ESMAC. ESMAC exists to stimulate and advance scientific knowledge and promote professional interaction and the exchange of ideas. The conference covers all aspects of movement analysis with a special focus on clinical research and technological developments to support clinical gait analysis. Perhaps ESMAC’s greatest strength is as a meeting ground for people from a wide range of different backgrounds including orthopaedic surgeons, neurologists, physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, physiotherapists, prosthetists, occupational therapists, human movement scientists, and a range of engineers from different backgrounds. We hope you all enjoy the experience.
