Montreal, June 16, 2003 -- NexGen Ergonomics Inc. (NexGen) is pleased to announce that customer deliveries of ErgoImager™ Version 1.0 will commence in the 3rd quarter of 2003. ErgoImager is a unique 2D/3D translation tool that allows you to perform 3D biomechanical analysis using 2D digital images.

ErgoImager allows users to import digital images and superimpose a 3D mannequin using various translation techniques and technology from our ManneQuin technology (which includes ManneQuinBE, ManneQuinPRO and ManneQuinELITE) and then interface with University of Michigan 3D SSPP model (3D SSPP). ErgoImager provides reports with the original image, mannequin in the posture matching the image and selected results from the 3D SSPP.

ErgoImager produces reports with original digital images, 3D mannequin and biomechanical results and saves time on biomechanical analysis.

ErgoImager is NexGen's 3rd product that interfaces with the 3D SSPP. The others are ManneQuinELITE and ErgoMaster (which interfaces with the 3D SSPP in 2D mode).
