NexGen Ergonomics Announces Addition of JAMAR® Products

Montreal, June 7, 2001 -- NexGen Ergonomics Inc. (NexGen), is pleased to announce that it has added various JAMAR® products to its extensive product line. These include the JAMAR Hand Dynamometer, JAMAR Pinch Gauge, JAMAR Hand Evaluation Kit, and JAMAR goniometers. All these products are available immediately.

The JAMAR Hydraulic Hand Dynamometer is ideal for routine screening of grip strength. Virtually leak-proof hydraulics and isometric design ensure accurate, reproducible results and years of reliable service. Built to last, a shock-resistant rubber cap protects the stainless-steel gauge and a wrist strap prevents accidental damage if dropped.

Unlike conventional pinch gauges, the JAMAR Hydraulic Pinch Gauge's unique design frees the user to perform a true pinch pattern because the evaluator supports the weight of the gauge. A highly accurate pinch-force measurement, devoid of artifact, is the result. Red indicator needle remains at maximum reading until reset. Measures pinch force to 45 lbs. Includes instructions, handy carrying case and one-year warranty.

NexGen is the leading distributor and developer of systems for ergonomic and biomechanical job analysis, design & research. These include a variety of software analysis tools performing biomechanical, NIOSH, RULA and other analysis, sEMG analysis systems, data acquisition systems (including goniometers and force sensors), 3D human modeling software, ergonomic design systems, video analysis systems, as well as many other products. NexGen's web site also includes the Ergonomics Resource Center that provides a variety of information resources to industry professionals.
