AMTI Force Plate Stairs
AMTI’s force platform stairway has been designed in response to clinical patient requests to improve their gait while going up and down stairs. The force platform stairway is based upon the use of a pair of new or pre-existing force plates, to which the special stairway unit is attached. A walkway can easily be converted from gait to stairway testing, which economically increases the versatility of a gait laboratory.
Using two force platforms, the design allows four independent consecutive steps to be analysed. This is due to a unique nesting feature of the stairs, in which the floor and the second step are connected to the first force platform, and the first and third steps are connected to the second force platform. Different force platform spacings and lateral offsets can be accommodated by the design of the stair mounts themselves, and threaded inserts are on each force plate position and anchor the stair assemblies. A 7 inch rise and 10.4 inch run are standard, along with a width of 24 inches or more.

How to choose your AMTI force plate
Take a look at our list of considerations if you are interested in an AMTI force plate but not sure where to start.
Biomechanics Measurement System
The Biomechanics Measurement System (BMS) is OPTIMA technology in the most affordable package.
Canes, Crutches and Walker Sensors
These sensors are specifically designed for the precise measurement of the forces and moments transmitted through walkers, canes and crutches.
Custom and Special Designs
These bespoke force plates are tailor-made to your requirements, including waterproof systems and glass-top platforms.
Filler Force Plates
We supply AMTI filler force plates in quarter, half and full length sizes to create the optimum custom set-up.
The multi-axis load cells (multi-axis transducers) are ideal whenever it is important to measure forces and moments in three dimensions.
These treadmills can be with or without incline, and are a compact dual-belt end-to-end force sensing treadmill.
Multi-Axis Wear-Testing Machines
These simulate human joint motion, for the purpose of testing and evaluating prosthetic devices prior to clinical use.
Optima Human Performance System
This ground-breaking development in force technology offers a 10-fold improvement over any other force platform available on the market.
Portable Force Plates
Lightweight, simple and easy-to-use, these portable force plates are a flexible solution that are ready to set up on any flat surface.
We offer a range of software which can be used for data acquisition, analysis, research, rehabilitation, training and more.
