Table 6 summarizes all of the test results.
The APAS system scored the highest with 73 points, which exceeds the closes
competitor by more than 10 points.
When considering the price of the system, the
value is more than evident. The complete APAS, including all of the hardware and
software, costs only $10,000 while the other ranked equipment range in price from $75,000
to $300,000 or more.
Table 6 illustrates that although the APAS cost
is only $10,000 it out performed all the other companies on the various tests. The
question is how it is possible?? The answer is that the Ariel Company does not spend
money on shows, advertisements, commissions, or other marketing and sale expenses.
We do not have expensive brochures and none of us wears three piece suits. We
spend that money on continuous software and hardware developments. These
product developments and cost reductions are passed to the customer, thus, costing you
less for a better product. In other words, for $10,000 you get the best product for the
When considering the Price Ratio per $1000.00,
the APAS scored 7.30 which is more than 10 times
better than any other system.

It is clear to all objective observers that the
APAS outperformed all the other companies. Not only did the APAS score the highest,
in the majority of the test categories, but in all cases this feat was accomplished at the
Figure 2 illustrates the Performance Price
Ratio per $1000.00. Since the APAS costs only $10,000.00, there is no sensible
alternative. Since the APAS demonstrated performance levels which exceeded those of
all the other companies by substantial margins, the question remains why any rational
consumer would purchase equipment other than the Ariel Performance Analysis System.

that the APAS outperformed all the other companies. Not only the APAS scored the highest
performance, but in all cases, at the lowest price.

Figure 3 illustrates the Performance Price
Ratio per $1000. Since the APAS costs only $10,000.00, there is no reasonable nor
credible alternative. The APAS performance exceeded all the other companies by such
a margin that it is questionable why any serious investigator would purchase any other
system. Some individuals may think that the other marker systems are faster in
collecting data. However, with the introduction of the new "Tracker" system
which optimizes the automatic digitizing capability of the APAS, the same statement is
equally true for the APAS.
To summarize the entire study, it was
revealed in this independent study by the highest authoritative research-affiliated
organization and presented at the 3D Conference of Human Movement in Chattanooga,
Tennessee on July 3, 1998 that the APAS system exceeded all other system in analyzing
valid and reliable data for Human and biological movement.
