About these proceedings

Introduction

The first European Symposium on Electric Stimulation of Bone Growth and Repair was held in Brussels on May 20, 1976. The meeting was sponsored by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the Interdisciplinary Bone Biomechanics Unit of the University of Brussels, and the Department of Applied Electronics, Chalmers University of Technology, Goteborg. The aims of the Symposium were to create and organize communica­ tion between European laboratories in the field of electric stimulation of healing processes and generally to promote international collaboration in this field.
