NexGen Ergonomics Announces Volume Production of the New iLMM3 (Industrial Lumbar Motion Monitor)

Montreal, September 27, 2011 -- NexGen Ergonomics Inc. (NexGen) is pleased to announce volume production and deliveries of the new iLMM3 (Industrial Lumbar Motion Monitor) commenced this quarter. NexGen is marketing the new iLMM3 worldwide in the ergonomics and related markets. There are several hundred users of previous LMM versions.

The iLMM3 measures the position, velocity and acceleration of the spine in the sagittal, lateral, and twisting planes and this data is used by the LBD (Low Back Disorders) risk model to identify risk factors. Some of the new features include:

  • Measures lumbar spine movements using the latest wireless 3D motion tracking technology
  • Considerable reduction in weight
  • Easier and faster setup as the iLMM3 has few moving parts
  • Adjusts automatically to an individual's height/spine length
  • Simpler software set-up and data-gathering process
  • The software alerts the user if data quality is compromised

The Lumbar Motion Monitor was developed by Dr. William S. Marras and follows years of extensive research and development.

The iLMM3 has numerous applications in industrial ergonomic settings. The iLMM3 breaks the work into individual job tasks for analysis of the specific range of motion, velocity and acceleration moments on the lumbar spine. The iLMM3 allows you to compare the task to a normative database of common variables associated with jobs that have a high incidence of low back disorders. These comparisons, combined with the data from the job site assessment, allows you to recommend ergonomic changes. The software is fully Windows compatible and includes assessments based upon the 81 and 91 NIOSH lifting guides and Snook psychophysical tables.

NexGen is the leading distributor and developer of systems for ergonomics and biomechanical job analysis, design and research. These include a variety of software analysis tools performing biomechanical, NIOSH, RULA and other analysis, force measurement instrumentation, motion analysis solutions, vibration analysis tools, sEMG analysis systems, data acquisition systems (including goniometers and force sensors), 3D human modeling software, 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.
