The Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society (GCMAS) is a multi-disciplinary organization of physicians, allied health professionals, engineers, biomechanists and scientists working together to advance scientific knowledge, technical capabilities, and clinical practice in the field of human movement.
The mission of GCMAS is to improve functional outcomes and quality of life for individuals with any movement disorder at any age. We apply the latest technology and professional knowledge to measure, evaluate, and understand human movement, provide a forum for professional interaction and exchange of ideas, promote education, stimulate research, and disseminate current knowledge and best practices to enhance human movement and health.
Membership is available to all professionals and students interested in motion analysis, gait analysis, or the study of human movement. Information for individuals and families interested in learning about motion analysis or finding a motion analysis laboratory or gait laboratory will be added in the future.
On November 18, 2013, the GCMAS lost one of our longtime members. Dr. Ed Quigley was killed in a car accident on his way to work near San Diego, CA. The GCMAS offers our sincerest condolences to Ed's family, and together we grieve the loss of a colleague, mentor, and friend.
Ed's family has requested that in lieu of flowers, those wishing to send memorials should be directed to the crowd funding website at http://www.gofundme.com/5d8gxg. This page was created by a close friend of the family.
