View Full Version : Help needed to evaluate MMU biomechanics (force plate) videos onYouTube

Dear Biomch-L subscribers,

Many thanks to those of you that responded to our previous posting (below) by completing the evaluation questionnaire. We will
close the survey at the end of Monday 1st December, so if anyone still wishes to help us to evaluate the force plate videos,
please do so before then (details below).

We will post a summary of responses on Biomch-L early in the New Year.


Adrian Burden and Ed Parker

Previous posting
As you may be aware from our recent posting, we have produced a series of six videos detailing how to use force platforms and
their use in sport and exercise biomechanics.

Whilst the videos were developed primarily for undergraduates studying biomechanics on sport and exercise science courses, they
could also serve as a valuable resource for students in other areas of biomechanics that require knowledge of force platform

We have created a playlist for the series on YouTube:


We would really appreciate it if the biomechanics community could assist us in evaluating the videos. To this end we have created
a short online questionnaire which should only take 5 minutes to complete.

Once you have watched all/some of the videos you can complete the questionnaire here:


The questionnaire will be available until Monday 1st December.

We have also recently uploaded additional content to our YouTube channel including high speed video of various gymnastics skills,
