Force Plates

Leading gait researchers choose Bertec force plates. Thousands of research projects in hundreds of clinics and labs around the world have relied on Bertec force plates to compute forces, moments, directions, torques, and centers of pressure and have enjoyed:

  • Both top-mount and foot-mount options available
  • Documented, superior accuracy with no drift
  • Superb resolution with 0% cross-talk — best on the market
  • No signal interference from outside sources with 100% digital encoding
  • Wide range of sizes and load capacities
  • Strongest industry warranty — 7 years on hardware and electronics!

Bertec force plates have been specifically designed for gait, balance, ergonomic and sports analyses using strain gage technology, innovative designs, and quality manufacturing.

Force plates are available in a variety of sizes and load ranges and can be used with any motion analysis system including camera-based systems using passive markers, active markers or magnetic sensors.

The force plate signal is fed into your choice of amplifier — digital, analog or dual digital/analog output. The digital signal output can be directly plugged into a standard USB port without the requirement of an additional PC card for analog-to-digital (A/D) signal conversion.

Digital acquisition software enables the user to collect data quickly without the need for additional custom designed software.

Balance plates and jump plates are specialized force plates. Bertec Force Plates simultaneously measure three force components along the x, y, and z axes and three moment components about the x, y, and z axes for a total of six outputs. Balance and jump plates measure the vertical force and two moments which can be used to compute the Center of Pressure (CoP).
