THE FORCE PLATE IN SPORTS BIOMECHANICS RESEARCH
AbstractThere is an increasing need in research for reviewing and summarizing similar studies. While there has been a preponderance of force plate (FP) analyses of walking, running and jumping, twenty different sports have been analyzed by biomechanics researchers utilizing a FP for study of various reaction force parameters (Table 1). for several sports, only one or two FP articles were found; thus indicating the need for additional kinetic research of these and other sports.
