In 2013, the ISB Council agreed to establish a Fellowship of the International Society of Biomechanics (FISB). The purpose of awarding Fellowships of the ISB is to recognize distinguished professional achievement in biomechanics. Fellows of the ISB are encouraged to provide continued professional service and leadership to the Society, particularly to foster the activities of Early Career Researchers within the Society.
