Dear colleagues:
I am looking for advice concerning low-back kinematics measurements.
We are interested in measuring ROM isokinetically and isometrically as well as
some forces and torques. We are considering
at the moment to purchase a Isostation B-200 but we have anumber of
doubts.
The strings and attachments to restrict the pelvis and chest are far from
satisfactory. The repeatability is poor (consequently?). The mechanical stops
are bad and the cost is in the sky. The built-in normal values are strange as
well, and I could not enter into the software.
I am looking for advice about your experience with the B-200 or with similar
devices. Do you know about similar, maybe cheaper systems?
I'll be gratefull for any help/advice/suggestion/experience sharing
Moshe Nissan
