Dear Biomch-L readers,

We would appreciate suggestions on pressure platform (mat) systems,
particularly your experience with Tekscan, Novel, and RSScan models. We
will be looking at walking in children and potentially adults. General pros
and cons of the resistive versus capacitive sensors used in these models
would also be helpful. We are operating a VICON system - has anyone
collected the pressure via analog output (ie. so that collected via
Workstation in sync with all other channels), and then post-processed the
data? Other suggestions for dealing with data synchronization with VICON
and force plates?

Previous biomch-l posts have posed similar questions - I am hoping for any
new developments or additional insight:

I will post the responses.

Thanks and best regards,
