Frequently Asked Questions (old)
Thank you for your interest in the Ariel Performance Analysis System (APAS). The APAS is a 3D video-based movement analysis system which accurately quantifies function and provides objective data the professional may use to justify or evaluate treatment. Areas of successful application for the APAS include human performance, injury and rehabilitation assessment, quantification of loss for compensation claims, equipment and product testing and development, determination of potential or actual risks for products and activities in liability litigation, as well as applied research in the areas of orthopedic medicine, therapeutics, and physical training.
The APAS integrates state-of-the-art computer and video processing hardware with specialized software modules that perform data collection, analysis, and presentation. Objective quantifiable documentation is provided for both 2-Dimensional and 3-Dimensional analysis. Specific points of interest can be digitized with user intervention or automatically using contrasting markers. Stick figures are then generated and can be synchronized with kinematics data. Additionally, up to 32 channels of analog data (i.e. force platform, EMG, goniometers etc.) can be synchronized with the kinematics data.
The APAS product information can be found on the Ariel internet site (www.arielweb.com). The direct address to several areas that might be of interest are listed below.
