Dear Members,

I will be starting a project measuring the center of gravity displacements
of seated patients in reaching motions during 3-D motion capture. Has
anyone tried or have insight on the use of a stool or chair on a force
plate and its reliability in measuring center of gravity displacement (by
integrating ground reaction forces)? The chair legs would be contained on
the surface of the force plate and the subjects' legs would either be
suspended or tucked into the chair.

Thanks in advance,
