Thanks to its six components force-torque sensors the force plate measures the force applied on its upper plate.
With the location of the center of pressure, this biomechanical sensor is proving to be an indispensable tool in the evaluation of muscular effort generated by the subjects during the execution of their movement.
It is very well adapted to the fields of biomechanics and medicine (sports or rehabilitation medicine) which studies are intended to analyze gestures such as walking, running or jumping.
The force plate is also an essential device to measure effort which contact surface is important. Its dimensions and measuring range can be adapted to specific needs.
