Unique equipment to measure upper limb reaction forces

Now you can go beyond grip forces and capture forces exerted by the upper body. Researchers and trainers in gait analysis, sports performance and ergonomics can better understand whole body biomechanics and the shifts between lower and upper body reaction forces.

The force bar can be used to examine the upper body forces and moments involved during gait, stability, and neurological analysis.  Measure multi-component forces and moments (Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, My, Mz), and calculate power and work in a variety of research and testing environments.

The rugged design and construction along with the superior characteristics of strain gage sensors provide high sensitivity, zero cross-talk, excellent repeatability, and long term stability.
