The motion group
Trust our proven track record. An international leader in force measurement technology for biomechanics, Bertec Corporation began offering multi-component load transducers in 1987. We specialize in gait analysis equipment, balance assessment and training, ergonomics, athletic performance, and industrial applications for specialized load cells/transducers.
Researchers and clinicians in gait labs all over the world have trusted Bertec to provide accurate force measuring equipment and software. Our relationships with our customers are personal and invaluable. Our dedicated sales and support team strives to go above and beyond, to listen to your needs and satisfy those expectations.
Hundreds of researchers and clinicians at gait laboratories around the world trust Bertec biomechanics measurement technology. Bertec’s Fully Instrumented Treadmills, Force Plates, Balance Plates, and Force Bars with integrated software capture and deliver precise data.
Bertec offers a wide range of hardware and software solutions to accurately capture and analyze multi-axis force measurements. Our products are reliable, durable, and versatile — providing cost-effective investments that can be used in a wide variety of applications.
Bertec Force Plates have been specifically designed for gait, balance, ergonomic and sports analyses using strain gauge technology, innovative designs, and quality manufacturing.
Force plates are available in a variety of sizes and load ranges and can be used with any motion analysis system including camera-based systems using passive markers, active markers or magnetic sensors.
The force plate signal is fed into your choice of amplifier -- digital, analog or dual digital/analog output. The digital signal output can be directly plugged into a standard USB port without the requirement of an additional PC card for analog-to-digital (A/D) signal conversion.
Digital acquisition software enables the user to collect data quickly without the need for additional custom designed software.
Balance plates and jump plates are specialized force plates. Bertec Force Plates simultaneously measure three force components along the x, y, and z axes and three moment components about the x, y, and z axes for a total of six outputs. Balance and jump plates measure the vertical force and two moments which can be used to compute the Center of Pressure (CoP).
The Biametrics Sports Plate is a force plate that reveals the amount and speed of force produced in three different directions. By tailoring training to optimize the balance between speed and time, athletes can produce his or her peak power performance.
The Biametrics Force Bar measures forces exerted by the arms or hands and has wide application for many sports including ski jumping, baseball, tennis, golf, and gymnastics.
The Biametrics Treadmill is fully-instrumented to precisely measured all force and moment components involved in locomotion.
