Prof. Ir. Dr. Noor Azuan Abu Osman graduated from University of Bradford, UK with a B.Eng. Hons. in Mechanical Engineering, followed by MSc. and Ph.D. in Bioengineering from University of Strathclyde, United Kingdom. Azuan’s research interests are quite wide-ranging under the general umbrella of biomechanics. However, his main interests are the measurements of human movement, prosthetics design, the development of instrumentation for forces and joint motion, and the design of prosthetics, orthotics and orthopaedic implants. In 2004 he received BLESMA award from ISPO UK NMS in recognition of his significant contribution to the development of the prosthetic socket. He is curently the Deputy President of Society of Medical and Biological Engineering (MSMBE), affiliated organisations of International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE). He is currently the Dean of Engineering and also the Deputy Director of Centre for Applied Biomechanics and the Coordinator of Motion Analysis Laboratory, Faculty of Engineering, University of Malaya. He has publications in books, conference proceedings and journals. He is also a Chartered Engineer (C.Eng.) and Fellow (FIMechE) with The Institute of Mechanical Engineers, UK, Chartered Professional Engineer (C.PEng) and Fellow (FIEAust) with Engineers Australia and a Chartered Scientist (C.Sci.) and Professional Member (MICR) with The Institute of Clinical Research, UK.
