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.

This white paper provides an overview of the force plate characteristics that can influence gait data. These characteristics will then be evaluated for the force plates in an instrumented treadmill  based on the protocol proposed by Sloot et al. (2015).
