  • force plates for stairs

    Dear all

    I am beginning a PhD studying children's gait on stairs. We are building
    a special set of adjustable-height stairs, and we would like to put
    forceplates in a few of the stairs. Can anyone tell me:

    (1) What make of forceplates would be best to use? Both in terms of
    general reliability, and in terms of their being shallow/ thin enough
    to implant in a wooden step.

    (2) Which stairs should we put them in for maximum data?! We will want
    joint moments and powers - we will also have kinematics with a 6-camera
    SMART/ELITE system, but no EMGs.

    Many thanks in advance for any advice you give. Hope to hear from you
    soon!
