ForcePlates measure as little as the touch of a finger through to full standing weight-bearing. 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. Connected 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.
There are two ForcePlate options - a FP3 or FP4 ForcePlate. Each consists of a sandwich of two uniform precision metal plates, with four load cells mounted between them. The vertical component of the total reaction force is measured independent of where it is applied over the surface of the plates.

Multiple ForcePlates can be used to increase the data collection options. The BaseFrame is designed to hold two or four ForcePlates in a variety of positions on the floor to accommodate a wide range of subject sizes with different stance widths.
ForcePlates used in a BaseFrame can still connect to wired or wireless interfaces, either by connecting directly to the interface via a cable, or via wireless DataLITE Adaptors that are held externally from the BaseFrame within an Adaptor holder.
The ForcePlates provide maximum versatility of applications such as:
