Description: Sierra Summit is data management and report generation software that integrates with Electromyogram (EMG), Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV), and Evoked Potential (EP) in support of Nerve Conduction Study (NCS) hardware systems.

Generated test results can then be exported into reports that can be filtered and customized.

Data collected by this software is stored on a Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server database.
