The International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry ISAK was founded as an organisation of individuals whose scientific and professional endeavour is related to kinanthropometry. ISAK's purpose is to create and maintain an international network of colleagues who represent the world community transcending geography, politics and the bounds of separate disciplines in order to establish a dynamic area of scientific endeavour.

Kinanthropometry is the area of science concerned with the measurement of human body composition. As a result of changes in life styles, nutrition, activity levels and ethnic compositon of populations, changes to the distribution of body dimensions are forever occurring. Kinanthropometry is the interface between anatomy and movement.

It takes the measurement of the human body and determines it's capability for function and movement in a range of settings. The accreditation scheme is based on the concept of a four-level hierarchy. A key element in it is the objective maintenance of quality assurance by requiring that all levels have to meet initial technical error of measurement TEM.

An event of historical importance which occurred at Conference was the founding of the International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry. On July 20, , at Jordanhill College of Education in Glasgow, Scotland, a meeting of 34 international delegates agreed to the foundation of "an organisation of individuals whose scientific and professional endeavor is related to kinanthropometry", the quantitative interface between human structure and function.

The meeting adopted a constitution specifying an Executive Council of nine members. The group focused on the promotion and upgrading of kinanthropometric research. Their efforts led to the establishment of three international congresses on kinanthropometry and the inclusion of specialised sections in other meetings, such as the Olympic Scientific Congress of As the number of colleagues with mutual interests increased, it was decided to move away from exclusiveness of small committee to openness of new organisation which would serve more directly all who might be interested.

ISAK is managed by a Council which consists of five officers and up to four additional council members. The Council is assisted by some working groups. Current holders of these positions are listed below. What is ISAK? Latest courses. Read more.
