ForcePlates

ForcePlates measure as little as the touch of a finger through to full standing weight-bearing. Multiple ForcePlates can be used to increase the data collection options. Use of two ForcePlates provides easy measurement of bilateral upper or lower limb weight distribution. Combining four ForcePlates allows continuous dynamic measurement of anterior/posterior and mediolateral weight distribution.

Biometrics Ltd FP3 and FP4 ForcePlates are focused to the needs of the researcher providing high precision, versatility and ease of use. Connect with a wired or wireless interface, ForcePlates enable data capture and analysis of vertical component of reaction force in a wide variety of applications. Display and analyze force in N, Kg or lb from as little as 0.1 Kg/lbs and up to 1,000 Kg. Both ForcePlates have the option to connect to a wireless or wired interface.

BaseFrame and Four ForcePlates
Dimensions 740 x 600 x 20 mm
Mass 10Kg

Multiple ForcePlates

The BaseFrame is designed to hold ForcePlates in a variety of positions on the floor to accommodate a wide range of subject sizes with different stance widths.

The BaseFrame has cutouts which usually hold 2 or 4 ForcePlates and comes with 8 blanks to fill any unused cutouts. The integral handle makes the BaseFrame easily portable and the non skid strips on the bottom prevent sliding on floors or carpet.

The ForcePlates provide maximum versatility of applications such as:

  • Upper extremity – unilateral or bilateral
  • Seated balance
  • On the chair/wheelchair seat
  • Under the chair legs
  • Under wheelchair wheels
  • Incorporation into other equipment – for example into stair steps to measure weight bearing during stair climbing
  • Lower extremity
  • Unilateral or bilateral
  • Single axis
  • Mediolateral (Left/right)
  • Anterior/posterior (Front/back)
  • Multi-axial
  • Simultaneous Mediolateral (Left/right) and Anterior/posterior (Front/back)
  • Sit to stand – use 2 ForcePlates on the seat and 2 or 4 on the floor
