Brand image creation
Assessment of brand image –a brand is an element of the visual identity of a product or business; it can be a name, designation, sign, symbol, design, or a set of these elements that distinguish a particular product or business from its competitors. Brand image for consumers relates to certain product or business values, strengths and weaknesses, visibility, consumer knowledge, experience or loyalty, purchasing benefits. The brand makes it easier to compete by helping to stand out in the market and attract shoppers' attention.
Exploring the competitors and their products - continuous exploration and monitoring of the market and competitors is an opportunity for an enterprise to collect and analyse information on particular sectors, markets and competitors based on which decisions can be taken on the course of a company's development.

The device integrates three standardized testing protocols and seven equilibrium development programmes. The device can store the acquired data allowing to follow the dynamics of changes in the equilibrium parameters.
Dynamometry – dynamometry is a method of measuring muscular strength with a computerized device. The high-precision isokinetic dynamometer is able to determine the neuromuscular parameters of the joint under investigation: movement speed, maximum strength, average strength during the test, muscle fatigue during the test. The device is capable of testing the largest limb joints (wrist, elbow, shoulder, ankle, knee, hip) in various modes of motion (10-300 degrees / sec) and performance (isokinetic, isometric, isotonic). The machine can also create muscle-building protocols.
