  • Force plate and balance

    Hello all,

    We are doing some balance research using a force plate (AMTI ORS6-5).
    The subject stands as quietly as possible on the force plate and the center
    of pressure (CP) position is calculated from the signals collected from it.

    I would like to present some questions:

    1- What to do if the subject has to use some kind of support (like crutches or
    a walker) to be able to stand on the plate? They might be in contact with
    the plate or not?

    2- What are the most used/interesting parameters of CP to analyse? We here are
    mainly concerned on the speed and radius.

    Thank you in advance for your collaboration. I will post a summary if it is
    of interest.
