Dear colleagues:
We are in the process of acquiring an instrumented treadmill with built-in
force plates. We are in between two vendors: 1) the Bertec (two plates
placed right/left with two individual split belts) and 2) the Kistler (two
plates placed front/back with one belt). I would really like to get some
feedback about the Pros and Cons of each piece of equipment. This will
help us tremendously to obtain the best treadmill.

As usual a summary of the responses will be provided.

Thank you in beforehand for your feedback
