    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).

    Here is the tel. number of GWI:
