Version 4.5 was released in the second half of 2017 (see Fall 2017 newsletter). We are now offering upgrade pricing for users of earlier versions.

FSA Pressure Mapping Solutions

  • We are pleased to announce a new software version that will be included with all new pressure mapping, temperature mat or glove/ISS system solutions. Existing customers can call NexGen to obtain upgrade prices.
  • A new smaller high pressure cal jig is now available for use with the Glove Pressure Mapping System (GPMS), ISS sensor solutions and small pressure mats. It can be used to calibrate pressures to 30 psi. The larger HPCG is still required for some larger pressure mats that can be used to 30 psi. The new jig weighs only 12 lbs and dimensions when assembles are 14" x 14" x 6.2" (height).
  • Also, custom pressure mats can be produced. Please contact us for any non-standard sizes or layouts.

Mark-10 Gauges

Series E Gauges

NexGen will again be including a permanent license of our ErgoIntelligence MMH EI-MMH-SCM: Snook & Ciriello and Mital Table analysis software for all E series kit orders placed before June 30, 2018. This is a $399 USD value.


E series ergonomics kits include the new Series E advanced ergonomics force gauges. Attachments click and lock into place via innovative Click-Lock™ technology, a rugged antirotation locking mechanism. The attachments may be clicked into 90° or 180° orientations. No fastening is required, as with conventional force gauges, thereby reducing the risk of damage to the instrument.


Medical Products

FSA Pressure Mapping Solutions

We are also pleased to announce the release of a new balance solution using pressure mapping technology for rehab applications. BodiTrak Balance systems use software and a pressure-mapping sensor to provide center-of-pressure and vertical force information on a video monitor showing the patient's movement and foot pressure.

The systems provide effective tools for the therapist to assess balance-challenged patients and biofeedback to educate and train patients while documenting their progress.
