Force Plates are the Gold Standard for the measurement of Force Production, Power, and Landing Dynamics in human movement. AMTI’s AccuPower was designed specifically for explosive movements – with a large measurement surface and the incorporation of Hall Effect sensors which will not be damaged by high impulses from accidental overload.
The AccuPower force plate interfaces directly with a computer via USB or RS-232 connection and comes bundled with the powerful AccuPower software. Composite construction results in a low weight transducer and no mounting is required!
A: AMTI’s AccuPower Force Plate was specifically designed for evaluation of explosive movement. AccuPower has the largest measurement surface on the market and incorporates Hall Effect sensors. Hall Effect sensors offer two distinct advantages: will not be damaged by high impulses from an accidental overload and provides for minimal drift.
Q: Any peer reviewed literature related to validity of AccuPower?
A: YES!! Walsh, Ford, Bangen, and Hewitt (2006) published “The Validation of a Portable Force Plate for Measuring Force-Time Data During Jumping and Landing Tasks”. See our Publications page for a full citation.
