Another practical way to assess track and field athletes is through the use of standard force plates which acquire forces and moments in three directions (i.e., x, y, and z axis), providing coaches with additional information (i.e., kinetic and kinematic data) related to common field tests (e.g., vertical jumps) .].

Standing, walking, running, and jumping on a force plate
· PDF 檔案Force plates are commonly used in biomechanics labora-tories to measure ground forces involved in the motion of human or animal subjects.1–4 My main purpose in this article is to show that a force plate can be used as an excellent teaching aid in a physics
A 50-m force platform system is installed into the SP Lab. The length of this system is the longest for any track in the world using force platforms (The track itself is 90 m long.). At the starting line, force platforms are built into the area where the athlete’s feet and hands touch the track, making it possible to measure the athletic skills required for sprinting at the start of a race.
Mechanics of the Human Hamstring Muscles during Sprinting

The Growing Influence of Sports Technology Within …
For example, some use force plates which are often embedded into the platform within the strength and conditioning facility. The use of recent advances in force plates technology such as the dual plate from ForceDecks which is illustrated in Figure 2 below.
(PDF) Validity of vertical jump measurement devices
While force plates are considered a gold standard for vertical jump testing, lower-cost alternatives, such as certain jumping (i.e. contact) mats    also provide trustworthy estimation
The force decreased ~9.5% after the fatigue protocol (p = 0.01) and returned to baseline values during the recovery phase at the fifth minute. For the postural sway, the Area decreased during the recovery phase until the fourth minute (p = 0.007).
Hawkin Dynamics Home
Software and hardware for athlete monitoring. Our force plates are wireless and extremely easy to use, and our software is industry leading. Technology Built for Purpose Hawkin Dynamics believes that sports technology can be a powerful tool in a coaches arsenal.
Force platforms have long been confined to university laboratories, but ForceDecks finally makes them affordable, accessible and practical for day-to-day use in fast-paced high performance settings. With their incredibly simple set-up and intuitive software, ForceDecks allows quick and easy assessment of stability, strength and movement, and it’s all analysed with a single click.
Analysis of standing vertical jumps using a force platform

Smart2Move has reinvented the use of Force Plates in golf, by developing the only 1D wireless & 3D Dual Force Plates on the golf market, to measure the invisible forces with precision & complete accuracy. As force creates motion, if you want to measure our
Biomechanics and Newton’s Laws: Force-Time Curves and …
This article will focus on an important type of movement pattern: force-time curves, which illustrate how we apply force over time. We’ll combine this with an explanation of Newton’s laws of motion and how they relate to the study of sport and exercise using countermovement vertical jump performance (in which the subject bends at the hips and knees before jumping).
Rate of Force Development (RFD)
Why is the Rate of Force Development important for Sports? As power is a key determinant in the performances of many sports, optimising an athlete’s explosiveness may be of great importance (30-35). Research has identified that the RFD has been directly
