Dear Biomch-L-addicts,

We would like to measure the dynamics of the gait initiation in children
with and withoud coordination problems.
Our problem is that we have two force plates (1 Amti - 1 Kistler) of
different height. We think of building a wooden device to install the
Kistler plate on, so that the two plates have a similar height.

Does anyone of you have experience with this trick?
Does anyone of you know if this would influence the quality of the
force-signals heavily??

Quick responses will be appreciated a lot!

Thanks in advance.
Frederik Deconinck
