View Full Version : Biomechanics services and rates: survey request

11-16-2009, 08:49 AM
We represent the Material and Structural Testing Core associated with
the Orthopedics Biomechanics Laboratory at Mayo Clinic Rochester, and we
have been asked by the management to determine a new business plan for
the services offered by our biomechanics laboratory. In order to do
that, we need to do a competitive analysis of this industry. Based on
some preliminary research, we have determined that this industry is not
extremely well-defined, and therefore we are requesting that other
facilities who offer similar services share some of their experiences
with us. Please fill out the survey questions to the best of your
abilities. We will be sharing the results of the survey including our
own information very shortly with everyone. We appreciate your
assistance and time in helping us understand the market demand for these
services and hope that the information gathered here will also help you
in return. Please return this document to saeed.quratulain@mayo.edu.
Thank you for your time.
