Force Platform

Sturdy unidimensional platform with four independent load cells for jump, leg press, and similar setups.

This multipurpose force platform is intended to be used together with our biosignalsplux kits. Its versatile design enables a wide range of applications such as jump analysis, center of mass distribution, weight assessment, force production capacity, and others. Multiple configurations and measurement range options are available.
