Dear Biomch-l readers:

Does anyone know of a relatively low-cost commercially available force platform
(US $1000 or less) that measures only the force normal to the platform? In
addition, I would like to know if there are commercially available platforms
which simply measure contact and non-contact times (for example in repeated
vertical jumps). I would like to use them for teaching undergraduate
students. Thanks in advance for any information that you might have.
