A customer wants to measure the ground-reaction forces or GRF’s during treadmill running. They want to measure and study the runner’s foot-strike patterns at different speeds. They also want to be able to record and graph the runner’s contact time, aerial time, and lower limb acceleration.
Multiple of Interface’s SSB Sealed Beam Load Cells can be installed under a metal platform, inside of the treadmill. The runner’s foot-strike pattern data are picked up and displayed when the SSB’s are connected to the JB104SS Junction Box. The total amount of force is displayed through the 480 Bidirectional Weigh Indicator.
Interface’s force solution system was able to help this customer measure the ground-force measurements of the runner on their treadmill test.
