  • Biomechanics services and rates: survey request

    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
