Biomch-l members,
A few weeks ago I posted a request for information on 6 DOF mechanical
linkages, and I would like to thank all of the people who responded.
Below is a brief summary of the various information I received, which
includes information on mechanical linkages, remote 6 DOF sensors, and
some references. This information is definitely not comprehensive, but
is only a summary of the information that was offered to me. If you would
like further information about the information I received, please feel
free to contact me directly.
