Thanks for the reply Bob,
Six months to two years, depending upon many
factors. My best reply is to stay in touch with me but do not
depend on me for an immediate job or income. I would advise you
to get yourself situated in some sort of job with the sub-goal of
getting back to APAS activities for a future business.
Of course I have a thousand questions/thoughts, like what/when's the
and is there a situation where a business could work without a

remote collection sites and we do the data reduction at my main
office. It takes different equipment. For example, you
need a laptop setup with analog collection capability and a portable
force plate/ EMG setup.
but I'll try to formulate something more coherent.
To let you know better where I'm coming from, I'm not
and therefore do not have the ability to put $ into something (I do
have skills and motivation).
I'm not a licensed PT.

That is how I started. Unfortunately,
in APAS work, you need certain baseline equipment. It is best to
have a formula ready to go that you can make money with (i.e. golf/
tennis analysis, etc.)
something on my own, part-time on a shoe-string budget (like selling
or tupperware I guess).
I have, however, learned, the hard way, that a

I had the opportunity to be part of the formulating of an APAS

investor appeared late in the game and took control. I
indicated to them
that I couldn't continue with it because it wouldn't work.

anyway, and within a year it went under. Nothing would make me
to be part of a successful APAS based business, which I believe is
upon how it is setup and run. You obviously have created
You know the basics of my technical background and experience.
I would like
to look for a way to partner with a success business/partner if
may be able to locate a used APAS, but even then I couldn't afford
to buy it
at the moment.
My initial questions:
Can a business like yours operate successfully without a facility?
Sports yes, medical no (unless under a P.T.,
Can your business operate without a licensed PT?
I can operate on Sales of APAS but it takes a
while to build to that point.
Can it operate soley on sales of APAS as a revenue stream, or does
require PT income?
I progress on income, not investors. I
am not prepared to make investment in the California Market at this
time. I would be interested in partnering with someone that
wants to invest and has contacts for obtaining the business. In
that case, we (Bob Wainwright/ Gideon Ariel [we do many projects
together]) bring technology and service to the table.
Is the market ready for remote APAS study processing (similar to a
test or something)?
That is my goal. The technology is
Do you/your group have the financial ability to make an investment
If so, on what scale?

bases from which to draw but but potential business sources and
contacts are more important.
Would it be better to look at one/several of the SouthWestern
states. In 6
months to 3 years, my wife and I would be willing to relocate
Las Vegas to Houston.
I believe Ariel Dynamics does that work
Is there a market for services such as on-site installation and
the APAS, and LAN/Internet installation/setup for the clinic/Lab?
If so, is
that part of your business?
I could run a business from Mars if I had a
fast internet line and a good organization working for me.
Could a business be run from Las Vegas or Houston covering the
SouthWest or West?
Hope this is helpful to you. Feel free
to call and discuss this further but please give me advance notice so
I can spend time with you. Good Luck
I have a contact out here who has at least 5 years experience
sides of the Workers Comp./Insurance side of things. He went
to school at
UC Northridge and is familiar with Southern Cal. He's
currently working for
the Gap, Inc. in Oakland/S.F. in the Workers Comp. area, but I know
also done Sales/Marketing for PT and APAS.
I know this is a lot, but I hope it will lead to something more
look forward to your reply.
