Bertecs Force Plates

One of the most common forces acting on the body is the ground reaction force (GRF), which acts on the foot during standing, walking or running. This force vector is three dimensional, consisting of two shear components (X and Y) acting parallel to the ground plus a vertical supporting force (Z). These forces can be measured using a multi-component force transducer. This transducer is commonly known as a force platform. The force platform also provides the location of the center of pressure of this GRF vector using the relative vertical forces seen at each of the transducers.

Many of the RRC researches are conducted using the device. To see a list of publications, please visit the Publications page.
