  14. 14. Insight Diagnostics – Wireless EMG
  15. 15. The future is not what it used to be.. <ul><li>“ That it will ever come into general use, notwithstanding its value, is extremely doubtful because its beneficial application requires much time and gives a good bit of trouble, both to the patient and to the practitioner because its hue and character are foreign and opposed to all our habits and associations” </li></ul><ul><li>The London Times 1834 </li></ul>
