  • Skill Technologies Inc's 6DF System

    Hi All,

    I am in the market for a not-so-pricey but effective kinematic analysis
    system for a new Motor Coordination Lab at Griffith University, Australia.
    I'm considering Skill Technologies' rather elegant 6DF electromagnetic
    polemeus device (starting at around US$30K) - the attraction being that
    bone and muscle tissue is transparent to EMFs - no lost markers; it's in
    real time (4 msec delay); it seems easy to use.

    Has anyone out there had experience with this system and might like to
    share your thoughts?

    -Is it easy to use?
    -Have you found the sampling rates (30/40/60/120Hz for 4/3/2/1 sensors) to
    be fast enough?
    -Is it a useful teaching tool? I see they have a lab manual with exercises.
    -Have you considered expanding the number of sensors to 8, or if so, has
    this worked?
    -Do you think the Phoenix (their basic system) is good value for money or
    would you recommend the more expensive Imperial and Genius systems?
    -How about support and service?
    -Would you recommend the system?
    -Any other comments or points to should be aware of?

    I am also considering MACREFLEX infra red video passive marker system. It's
    about $50-60K, but maybe 6D is even more elegant and better?

    Thanks very much,
