One of the lesser known categories of membership with ISB is 'Emeritus Member'. To be in this elite group the individual must be retired from professional employment in biomechanics, and to have been an active member of the Society for at least ten years prior to obtaining emeritus status.
Here is a list of our emeritus faculty. As you will see from this list, many emeritus members are still very much active in the field of biomechanics and/or the society!
- Barry Bates, University of Oregon
- Guido Bergmaier, Sportlehrer ETH
- Robert Gregor, The Georgia Institute of Technology
- Elizabeth Roberts, University of Wisconsin-Madison
- Eric Sprigings, University of Saskatchewan
- Guenter Rau, Aachen University of Technology
- Bart Van Gheluwe, Vrije Universiteit Brussel
- David Sanderson, University of British Columbia
- Christopher (Kit) Vaughan, University of Cape Town
- Jesus Dapena, Indiana University
- Graeme Wood, University of Western Australia
- W. Lutz Bauer, University of Bremen
- D. Gordon Robertson, University of Ottawa
- Sandra Olney, Queen's University
- Mont Hubbard, University of California
- Don Chaffin, University of Michigan
- Felix Zajac, Stanford University
- Christian Högfors Ziebell, Centre for Biomechanics, Göteborg
- Kim A.Burton, University of Huddersfield
- R. McNeill Alexander, University of Leeds
- Ian A.F. Stokes, University of Vermont
The list includes many names which may be familiar. It includes the longtime editor of Clinical Biomechanics (Kim), some former ISB Presidents (Guenter, Kit, and Sandra), a Muybridge award winner (McNeill), as well as former Executive Council members and congress keynote speakers. Also on that list is Graeme Wood, who organized our congress in 1991 and has served as our treasurer since 1989. No other ISB member has had such long continuous service to the ISB as Graeme, and we all owe him our thanks.
