Motek whitepaper: learn about quality of treadmill embedded force plates.
Our partner Motek have released a whitepaper entitled “Quality of Treadmill Embedded Force Plates for Gait Analysis”.
Gait analysis is used for both fundamental human movement research as well as clinical purposes with the aim to diagnose, plan and evaluate interventions.
Gait analysis was traditionally performed during overground walking using floor embedded force plates to record ground reaction forces during single steps. In the last decades the use of instrumented treadmills demonstrated several advantages with respect to overground methods.
Here you can read an overview of the most important treadmill embedded force plate characteristics.
