Basic Information

About ecramp48
Real Name:
Edmund Cramp
I moved to the USA from the UK in 1977 to work for Oxford Medilog, supporting their Medilog Holter EKG analysers and 24 hour monitors, where I designed and built one of the first multi-channel 24hr EKG simulators using real-life EKG data. Later I developed a SIDS monitoring system after the Oxford Medilog moved to Clearwater, FL. I was the first employee of Oxford Medical Computers (Vicon) in the USA with the introduction of the Vicon 3D system into the US in 1981 and was president of Oxford Metrics USA until the mid 1990s installing 3D Vicon systems and set up more than 60 gait and biomechanics labs for Vicon until the company moved to California. After leaving Oxford Metrics I wrote most of the documentation for the public domain C3D format and developed any C3D softwarre applications - I continue to support the C3D.ORG web site.

I formed Motion Lab Systems in 1987 to design and build multichannel EMG systems specifically for gait analysis. The introduction of the MA-100 EMG system bought technical innovation to the world of gait EMG with smaller, lighter, and reliable EMG systems that bought performance, quality and ease of use to Biomechanics, Motion and Gait Laboratories while our current system, the MA400, offers the highest performance of any multichannel EMG system.
Baton Rouge, Louisiana USA
Just about everything!
I work for, and part own, Motion Lab Systems, Inc.
