Dear All:

Can somebody point me towards a source of information
pertaining to the interpretation of data from Kistler force plates?
The one we are using has eight output channels, and we
need to know how to convert the eight channels into vertical,
horizontal and lateral forces as well as the torques about the
axes. Software already in use at our lab uses the output
from the plate but now we need to handle the data in a "raw"
form.


Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
