AMTI Force Plate
The force platform mounted in the floor allows us to measure the ground reaction force while we are also measuring the 3-D motion. This force data will allow us to determine the loads at any joint and the power generated and absorbed during the motion being tested. When you combine the motion data with this force data; the force, torque, and power of any joint can be evaluated.
The MPL uses an OR6-7 AMTI Force Platform. This force platform is specifically designed to allow for gait analysis, prosthetic fitting analysis, balance/stability analysis, and functional activity analysis.
