Dear colleagues,

it would be much appreciated if you could help answer 2 force plate

1. How close to the edge of an AMTI force plate can a person step and still
produce valid GRF and COP data. Is there a practical limit (eg. 2, 3 cm)?
2. Can multiple force plates (eg 2 FPs) be mounted on the same concrete
isolation block or pad. Most laboratories seem to mount the plates on
separate pads. Can the plates be mounted on the block for clinical gait
data (eg. stroke, cerebrals gait etc)?
