  • covering of faorce plate

    Dear collegues,

    I want to do GRF measurements of jumping horses using a force plate. For
    several reasons I want to cover the force plate with sand. Does anybody
    know if this influences my measurements? I understand that the GRF on sand
    will be different from the GRF on other surfaces. However I wonder whether
    the GRF measurements are still accurate: do they represent the force
    between sand and hoof, or does the sand influence these measurements?
    Furthermore, will this be any different when I cover the force plate with a
    rubber mat.
