Dear Biomch-L members,

For my research project I want to measure the (vertical) ground
reaction force during walking and standing in a 'normal' daily
setting. I'm looking for an ambulant (wireless) system which can
measure for 8-12 hours. I've already searched the literature and on
the Internet but maybe I've overlooked a system which completely
satisfies my criteria (new developments on the market?). Specific
demands are that the system should not weigh to much and that
the patient does not have to change (e.g.) the battery or memory
card during the measurement. I preferably looking for a system
which is now available on the market.

I thank all of you in advance for your help.
