Dear All,

I'm interested in the force plate data collection practices used by other motion labs. For example, what sampling frequency is used? Are the data filtered in any way? We use two AMTI OR6 force plates in our lab and often see suspicious 'spikes' in our force plate data immediately after initial contact. I'm not sure if these spikes are artificial or if they are real data caused by the impact of heal strike. Do others see this? We sample at 1080Hz and do not filter our signal.

Thank You,
