Biomech-L readers,

I'm a student at Lehigh University interested in working on Gait Analysis using
perturbation methods. I've read in several journal articles about the use of a
dual-belt or bilateral separated treadmill. Some of these even have the
capacity to run different types of perturbations in both directions, resulting
in motions that could produce a slip or fall in an elderly person. The studies
dont', however, list the manufacturer of such treadmills or any method of
contact for purchasing one. I'm hoping someone has experience with such a
treadmill and can lead me in the right direction as to where to look for more
information.

I've done extensive internet and publication searching and have still come out
clean.

Thank you,
