Biokinetics - 'Life through Movement'. More than 25 years after the profession of Biokinetics received recognition as a professional discipline within the South African health context, the first international conference organised by BASA is to be held in Potchefstroom from 27 to 29 September 2012. This first 'Life through Movement' Conference (LTMIC) is organised as an international conference at the Potchefstroom campus of the North-West University, where Professor Gert Strydom contextualised the profession (1996) and fought for the recognition the profession has today. Biokinetics focuses on exercise as treatment modality to prevent chronic diseases of lifestyle as well as to modify risk factors associated with chronic diseases of lifestyle. Biokineticists are also involved in the prevention and final-phase rehabilitation of sports injuries and performance optimisation.
