NeuroScript's research and software programs - MovAlyzeR® and GripAlyzeR™, provide tools and means for handwriting researchers to collect and analyze handwriting movements, educationlists to teach and assess handwriting performance and much more. NeuroScript primarily focuses on fine motor control.

Listed on this page are other systems in human movement measurement and analysis, spanning a broad range of interests. Many of the (older) movement analysis systems are in the Biomechanics Yellow Pages.
