Like all businesses around the world, we are feeling the impacts of COVID 19. To keep you abreast of the impact, we’ve started this blog:
Do NOT upgrade your Dexterit-E/GUI Computer to Windows 10 without our Upgrade Kit!
As the Dexterit-E computer is customized to run your Kinarm Lab, the Windows operating system cannot be upgraded to Windows 10 without adversely affecting your Kinarm Lab. Dexterit-E will NOT work.
To our valued Kinarm Lab users, collaborators and followers,
Today, June 27, 2019 is the day we announce our new company name: Kinarm.

Dean Richard Reznick, head of the Queen’s School of Medicine has just posted his annual report. In it he recognizes the research program and contributions of BKIN’s CSO and co-founder Dr. Stephen Scott. Congrats Steve!
To all of the wonderful people who we met at World Stroke Congress in Montreal,
Please reach out to us if you have not heard from us. The lead retrieval application has mysteriously “lost” our last 1.5 days of scans. We are working with them to hopefully recover the data, but for the moment, we are regrettably without your contact information.
We look forward to hearing from you,
Anne Vivian-Scott & Paul St. John
The Dexterit-E 3.7.0 release brings many improvements for usability, task development, and normative modeling. We are thrilled to be able to deliver such a long list of tangible improvements!
BKIN has successfully renewed their ISO 13485 certification for another three year period. With this re-certification we were also able to transition to the latest 2016 standard – representing the best practice in quality management system implementation for manufacturers of medical devices.
Long-time KINARM Lab user, Dr. Sean Dukelow, spoke at the International Neurorehabilitation Symposium in London, UK last week. INRS was one of four conferences that bound together for the biennial installment of RehabWeek. In his session, he described his research related to identifying and quantifying neurological impairments from stroke, concussion, CP and other disorders. He spoke of his long-term longitudinal study monitoring outcomes from over 100 subjects with stroke. Over the 6 month period he noted clear differences between early responders, late responders and non-responders. His results highlight the need for more sensitive, targeted identification of sensory and motor deficits to optimize rehabilitation after stroke. Further he has noted that the trajectory of recovery for some individuals with mild to moderate stroke may be much longer than previously considered. underlined the need for better characterization of impairments post stroke (Semrau, et al, 2015).
