The classic sit-and-reach (SR) test was used to estimate participants' hamstring extensibility. Briefly, at the beginning of the test the participants stood in front of the box, sat with their hips flexed, knees extended and both hands on the top of the ruler.
cmNAVIGO is unique with its integration- and data- architecture, the pre-built industry models and its flexibility for customization and extensibility. This allows us to significantly shorten the "go live" time with a rich MES for our customers, as well as define with them viable paths to replace legacy solutions" stated William Lee, InfoFab Business Director.
The dragline shows a high modulus and an excellent breaking energy that comes from a good trade-off between stiffness and extensibility. It has a breaking stress (stress in GPa at the breaking point) comparable to steel and presents a toughness (i.e., the breaking energy given by the area under the stress-strain curve) that surpasses Kevlar[R] fibres.
