Many universities and research & development companies work with item products.
This category will give you an impression about the various application fields in the scientific sector.
item building kit system used in brain research
A new approach to rehabilitation in the treatment of brain function disorders is being developed at Bielefeld University.
The OCTAVIS system uses a ring of eight flatscreen monitors to run a rehabilitation program based on a 360° virtual supermarket. Participants in clinical studies and patients embark on a virtual trip to the shops, using the program to train healthy regions of the brain or reactivate damaged regions.
The frame that supports the monitors is made from Line 8 profiles from item.
17 kg in weight and accurate to the micrometre
A team of scientists at the University of Freiburg have succeeded in producing high-resolution pictures of animal brain cells. The equipment they are using weighs a good 17 kg, has to be moved with micrometre precision and needs to take pictures from different distances in rapid succession – all without exhibiting any camera shake.
It took the team a great deal of improvisation with the item building kit system before they finally developed a camera mount that satisfied these requirements.
FAU - University Nürnberg
Resistance up to 50 kilovolts
A young researcher working on her final-year Bachelor project at Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) measured the behaviour of a wing profile when exposed to plasma formation and high voltage inside a wind tunnel.
The mount for the wing had to be non-conductive and stay perfectly still under the extreme conditions associated with exposure to voltages of up to 50 kV.
item has a special variant of Line 8 that can meet rigorous material and technology demands such as these – KH profiles.
