When a motion capture system is used in conjunction with force plates, they work together as a powerful tool for various research applications including biomechanical analysis, clinical gait analysis, physiology research, sports performance research, and many more. An OptiTrack motion capture system can synchronize with force plates to obtain both kinematic and kinetic measurements. Note that force plate integration is supported only with a Prime camera system using the eSync synchronization hub. For integration support, you must use Motive 1.9 or higher. This page provides quick guidelines to setting up and configuring force plates — with digital outputs — along with the OptiTrack motion capture system.

For detailed information on specifications and configurations on the force plates, refer to the documentation provided by the force plate manufacturer.


Analog Platforms

  • Analog force plate devices can only be implemented via NI-DAQ devices. Through DAQ devices, only the voltage signals will be detected and force plate features (vectors, position calibration, etc.) will not supported. Refer to the NI-DAQ Setup page for detailed instructions on integrating analog devices.
