Designed to collect data on forces developed during stepping, jumping, and other human-scale actions.
Designed for much higher forces than the Dual-Range Force Sensor, the Force Plate can measure the forces developed during stepping, jumping, and other human-scale actions. For example, you can perform the following kinds of experiments:
Observe the change in normal force during an elevator ride.
Measure the impulse delivered by the floor during a jump.
Measure the reaction force as a student leans against a wall.
