Recently, GW Inst. came up with a new data aqcuisition software
called "SuperScope II". Program is very user friendly and written in
object oriented language. We use this program to acquire the kinematic
data in our motion analysis studies. It is capable of digitizing 20
channels with 100 Hz in continuous format (according to our configuration).
However, you need to have the GWI's A/D board and multiplexer (if you want to
digitize more than 16 channels).
