Hi I'll soon finish a systematic review where I use the summary of findings table. I like your visualisation very much and would be intrested if the software is availble? Thanks, Stefan

No generic software as yet - we're still experimenting - this was hand built with illustrator for the graphics and then animated with Flash actionscript.
