Dear Biomch-L readers,

Yesterday I received a newsletter with the slightly temerarious name THE
STANDARD. It is the Spring 1991 issue of a new publication from Oxford
Metrics of Botley, Oxford, U.K., one of the larger producers of 3-D
biokinematics equipment, with major emphasis on gait analysis.

While commercial interests cannot be denied, THE STANDARD provides some
interesting and (I feel) objective information of a pre-competitive nature.
The first issue (6 pp.) contains the following:

Welcome to THE STANDARD,
Peter Meddings, Marketing Manager, Oxford Metrics

Practical Planning to Establish a Gait Laboratory,
Martin Lyster, Oxford Metrics

Recent Advances in the Treatment of Cerebral Palsy,
James R. Gage M.D., Gilette Children's Hospital, St. Paul, MN/USA

Starting a Gait Analysis Laboratory,
Susan Sienko Thomas B.Sc., the Chicago Children's Memorial Hospital

Literature Update

I might add, perhaps, that Oxford Metrics has been the major industrial
partner in the 1989-1991 CAMARC project ("Computer Aided Movement Analysis
in a Rehabilitation Context") under the European Communities' Advanced
Informatics in Medicine (AIM) action, which is currently in the proposal
phase for a three-year continuation. Standardisation is an important
component of this proposal.

subsequent book announcement; thus, it is being reposted now).
