NDI Optotrak Certus® Product Line

NexGen is now distributing NDI's Optotrak Certus® motion capture system in North America, South America, and Europe. Optotrak Certus is the gold standard among research scientists. With an accuracy of up to 0.1 mm and resolution of 0.01mm, the Optotrak Certus Motion Capture System continues to deliver the degree of precision that has become an Optotrak hallmark. A maximum marker frequency of 4600 Hz enables you to capture data at even higher speeds. In addition, the Optotrak Certus can track up to 512 markers and is pre-calibrated for fast set-up and ease of use.

Biometrics Ltd. Products

Low Profile Ankle Goniometer

The new low-profile ankle Goniometer is the latest addition to the Biometrics Electrogoniometer range of joint movement sensors. The new ankle goniometer is lighter and slimmer than its predecessor, allowing for a more comfortable fit when wearing footwear.

Designed specifically for measurement of ankle motion in two planes. Attaching to the lateral aspect of the ankle, the SG110/A simultaneously measures ankle dorsiflexion/plantarflexion and inversion/eversion. This lateral placement of the goniometer has been the preferred choice of customers for many years.


DataLITE Medical Device and Other Certification Update

DataLITE meets the latest standards for medical devices and is CE marked as a European Medical Device, conforming to the European Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC as amended by Directive 2007/47/EC.

Independently tested and certified to:

  • IEC 60601-1:2005 + A1:2012
  • EN 60601-1:2006 + A1:2013
  • BS EN 60601-1:2006 + A1:2013

In addition to non-medical applications, DataLITE and associated sensors are considered medical devices intended for medical measurement purposes, or for use in the treatment and diagnosis of disease.

DataLITE can be used for any application where the researcher requires portable general-purpose data acquisition of dynamic joint movement, surface EMG or other physiological measurements.

FSA Pressure Mapping Solutions

We have recently received a large number of requests for custom pressure mapping solutions. While our standard solutions meet most customer requirements, we can work with you when specialized solutions are needed.

Thought Technology Products

The new 360 suite has integrated the TT-pIR sensor into its configuration. Once a stand-alone product, now the TT-pIR can be used for CNS with 1 TT-pIR device, 1 skin conductance, 1 temperature and 1 respiration, 1 EEG and 1 EKG or HR/BVP. The clinician can do physiology biofeedback and forehead warming biofeedback (pIR). Using passive infrared sensors to measure the heat radiated by the client’s forehead helps you get an indirect indication of frontal lobe activation. pIR training can help develop focus and engagement.
