24-Mar-17 Update: Regrettably we are now full for KINARM Camp 2017. If you would like your name placed on a waiting list, please contact email@example.com.
BKIN Technologies is thrilled to announce that registration is now open for its 4th annual KINARM Camp. It will be held from the evening of Sunday, June 4, 2017 to Friday Night, June 9, 2017 in Kingston, Ontario.
The objective of the Camp is to provide focused training on Custom Task development for KINARM Labs. The five day agenda is tailored to Basic Researchers and will provide hands-on learning on the use of MATLAB Simulink and Stateflow to develop Custom Task Programs for the KINARM Lab. New users, graduate students, and post docs are all invited to attend. Clinical researchers with an interest in Custom Task development are also welcome.
Attendance is limited to 12 registrants, so please complete the KINARM Camp Registration Form to hold your spot. If you’re awaiting approvals, please complete the form nonetheless and note that your attendance is tentative.
AAN will be our first trade show in the Boston area, presenting a great opportunity for clinician scientists in the Boston area to try KINARM Standard Tests.
We look forward to welcoming you to booth #128 !
Neuroscience is a week away and Ian, Duncan and Anne are travelling to San Diego to answer your tough questions and give demonstrations of our KINARM End-Point Lab, KINARM Exoskeleton Lab and KINARM Gaze-Tracker. The high demand for our new Exoskeleton Lab means that the KINARM Classic will have to stand-in for demonstration purposes. Customer needs always come first! Send Anne a note if you want to pre-book your visit to avoid a wait!
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 camp was held June 5 – 10 , 2016 in Kingston, Ontario on the beautiful campus of Queen’s University.
Over a period of 5 days, 12 Campers from 10 different sites, received in-depth training on Custom Task development for KINARM Labs.
Here’s what this year’s campers said about Camp:
A customer of ours recently asked us to undertake an interesting challenge: create a custom KINARM Lab that enabled two KINARM End-Point robots, with Virtual Reality, to interact with each other in real time. The BKIN team was up to the challenge and want to share the result!
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.

BKIN will once again be exhibiting at the American Academy of Neurology being held this year in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. We will be in booth 1719. The tradeshow opens with a reception on Monday, April 18th, 2016 from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm; exhibits continue Tuesday, April 19th to Thursday, April 21st from 11:30 am to 5 pm. We close early Thursday at 3:30pm.
We will have a fully functioning bilateral KINARM End-Point Lab in the booth, giving everyone a chance to try KINARM Standards Tests, our sophisticated brain function assessment protocol.
We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver at Booth 1719!
