Computerized Function Testing Corporation (CFTC) (Chicago, Illinois,
USA)
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Computerized Functional Testing Corporation (CFTC) services a national
network of gait analysis clinics.

The CFTC GaitLink system is built around our proprietary motion-tracking
digitizer board that plugs into an IBM-PC compatible computer. The basic
system uses two video cameras and a force-platform to record the
kinetics
and kinematics of the test subject.

Data acquired at the remote test sites are electronically transmitted to
the centralized data-processing/analysis center in Chicago. Processed
data
and a clinical report is sent back to the remote site within 48 hours.

The GaitLink hardware and software may also be used for general research
use where accurate motion measurement is needed. Being designed around a
PC
compatible ISA-bus board, the system can be easily incorporated into any
custom application.

Delsys (Boston, MA, USA)
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Delsys is a young company consisting of individuals with a long history
of
experience in electromyography and biomechanics. The company was founded
by
Carlo J De Luca, director of the NeuroMuscular Research Center at Boston
University and co-author of Muscles Alive. It was established for the
purpose of transferring technology developed by his research group
during
the past quarter century.

Delsys offers two special surface EMG electrodes: a two-channel portable
EMG system, and an eight-channel EMG system designed to be integrated
into
a personal computer. All our products are precision instruments. They
are
designed and constructed to meet the most exacting needs of researchers
and
clinicians. Other products are under development and will be announced
as
they are ready for delivery.

Musculographics, Inc. (Evanston, IL, USA)
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
MusculoGraphics, Inc., is a consulting and software development company
specializing in biomechanics. The company was formed to help satisfy the
growing need for highly accurate computer models of the human body. In
addition to marketing several software programs, the company also
develops
custom software solutions in collaboration with industry partners.

Products: SIMM (Software for Interactive Musculoskeletal Modeling) is a
graphics-based software system that enables the user to quickly develop
and
analyze musculoskeletal models.

SIMM/Gait is an enhanced version of SIMM for use in animating and
analyzing
movement analysis data. It includes a translator program that converts
the
data you collect in your gait lab to a format readable by SIMM.

The Dynamics Pipeline is a general-purpose software package which
simulates
the dynamics of rigid-body systems. The Pipeline enables users to
perform
forward and inverse dynamic simulations on musculoskeletal models
without
doing any programming.
