    Hi Charles,
    I am a Biomedical Engineer for Kinematic Consultants, NJ. I am
    responsible for data collection and analysis. We use the APAS system
    for all aspects of patient analysis. We do gait and functional
    capacities on a daily basis. I have found the APAS to be efficient and
    accurate. We recently upgraded to the new APAS windows version. I am
    extremely impressed with the digi4 program. You can automatically
    digitize up to 4 views simultaneously. The transformed stick figure
    builds on the screen frame by frame. There is a new program called
    APASview. This allows you to combine kinematics, kinetics, force plates
    , EMG and any other data, in a dynamic, synchronized report. There are
    many other features but for me, time is important. For this reason
    alone, I am very happy with the new upgrade. Hope this is helpful.
    Monica Castro, B.E.
