University Bielefeld
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.

University Freiburg
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.
