  • About mounting ground reaction force plates on a ramp

    Dear All,

    I am currently working on a project which requires mounting ground
    reaction force plates on an inclined pathway (ramp). We currently have
    two Kistler force platforms (60 cm 40 cm 3.5 cm) which are
    connected to our eight camera Vicon-Nexus motion analysis system. The
    primary objective of this project is to evaluate the kinematics and
    kinetics of load carriage along the inclined pathway.

    I would like to seek advice from the biomechanics community on how to
    set up the force platform along the inclined pathway. If anybody from
    the community has built inclined pathways embedded with force plates,
    I would greatly appreciate your suggestions/comments/advice.

    I will put together a summary of the comments and will post it of the server.

    Thank you!
