Update 28-Mar-18: this issue is now resolved with the availability of Dexterit-E Explorer 1.4
Update: 19-Mar-18: We have ended the advisory. Our testing has satisfied our concerns that Microsoft patches could affect performance. You may apply updates to your Windows OS.
Just in time for Neuroscience 2016 we are pleased to release Dexterit-E Explorer version 1.3.
There are a number of new features:
Dexterit-E 3.6 has been a monumental effort for the team at BKIN and we are very proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish in this “landmark” release.
The classic Scott KINARM was great, but now it is even better…
Vertical out-of-plane stiffness: 8,500 N/m
End-point in-plane mechanical stiffness: ~16,400 N/m
• Greater Accessibility to the Head: The motors are mounted below the shoulders thus enabling full access to the head. Now you can use TMS – and any other head-mounted peripheral – without having to “squeeze it in”.
• No More Analog: The electronics have been upgraded to all digital communication using the EtherCAT protocol.
• Quiet and Smooth: With EtherCAT, we’ve changed the servo amps, eliminating the audible noise and slight jitter felt with the Classic. Subjects perceive smoother movements.
The NEW KINARM Exoskeleton is now generally available. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and pricing.
