We have a biannual i-FAB congress to

  • Connect people interested in foot and ankle biomechanics across different sectors
  • Increase the profile of foot biomechanics in a new territory
  • Connect with disciplines that might not normally have a strong biomechanics component

Sunday April 11th - Wednesday 14th, 2021

“It is our pleasure to announce and invite you to join us in this unique scientific venture in the next International Foot and Ankle Biomechanics Meeting, the i-FAB 2021 in Brazil, to be held in São Paulo/Brazil and organized by the i-FAB Committee and the University of São Paulo."

The congress will take place between April 11th and 14th, 2021 and it will happen for the first time in South America. We have the pleasure and the honor to bring this high-level scientific meeting to Brazil and Sao Paulo for the first time ever. This is a great opportunity to visit this beautiful country and discuss the cutting edge research on foot and ankle biomechanics.

I-FAB 2021 will be a three-day scientific program with an exciting scientific agenda in a unique location. The program will be multidisciplinary and full of presentations from our national and international guest speakers. We are planning 5 international lectures, 8 symposia / oral sessions and 2 poster sessions.

The focus of the presentations will be themes related to Footwear/Orthotics, Sports, Physiotherapy/Rehabilitation, Clinical Biomechanics, Ankle and Foot Modeling, Orthopedics and Surgery. All professionals and students who are directly or indirectly involved in the themes are warmly welcome to attend to contribute to the depth of the discussions during the event. We will promote a multidisciplinary event that integrates different complementary areas in order to understand the Ankle and Foot in all its dimensions.
