View Full Version : Kistler Bioware Help - CoM calculation

08-24-2009, 03:34 PM
Dear biomch-L readers

I am after advice on how to measure centre of mass (CoM) vertical
displacement during running using a Kistler force platform and Bioware
(Version 4) software. My understanding is that this can be achieved via
double integration of the force data which is built into the software
performance analysis function. However, the results I am obtaining are
unrealistic and I suspect it may have something to do with the system
and / or software initial set-up.

Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

With kind regards
