View Full Version : Strange force plate data in Vicon

12-18-2008, 07:45 AM

I am wondering if anyone has experienced a that problem we are right now.
We are using older model AMTI forces plates (not calibrated in years) and
the newest version of Vicon Workstation with a 612 system. Even immediately
after balancing the bridges, we are seeing wildly varying forces outside of
the "virtual" force plates in Workstation. The raw analog data from the
plates look fine at these times when strange forces occur. Regardless of
whether or not the force plates are accurate, could Workstation calculate
them not to be on the plate? And why are they all over the place?

Thanks in advance for any input,
