March 24, 2005 - Instrumentation grade Type 9281 and 9287B force plates incorporate piezoelectric force sensors with quartz crystals that convert force into data signal. Designed into foot tracks that don't reveal instrumentation beneath, patient steps, walks, or runs as instructed on outlined zone. Graduated force patterns visually represent physical condition, and impressions are captured for gait in motion analysis and to monitor nuances of improvement.

Press release date: January 10, 2005

Foot and leg rehabilitation can often be accelerated by the use of instrumentation grade force plates when ultra precise data results. This valuable data is produced by piezoelectric force sensors installed in force plates made by Kistler Instrument.

With extensive experience in producing test and measurement sensors, this highly repeatable accuracy originates from quartz crystals that convert force into data signals. Such definition of handicap levels enables the evaluator in gait in motion analysis to prove a theoretical approach and monitor nuances of improvement.

Typical installations of type 9281 and 9287B force plates are designed into foot tracks that don't reveal the instrumentation beneath. During an evaluation the patient simply steps, walks or runs as instructed on to an outlined zone. The impression is immediately captured and is available for interpretation.

Graduated force patterns visually represent the physical condition in a array of colors. Comparisons by patient, therapy approach, or therapy progression provide substantiating evidence so valuable, that this helping hand is the most useful of all.

Kistler is a worldwide supplier of precision instrumentation for the measurement of pressure, force and acceleration serving the R & D, industrial and automotive communities.
