Leonardo Mechanograph® Ground Reaction Force Platform (GRFP) Lite (LT)

The GRFP allows for dynamic measurement of ground reaction forces with respect to spatial resolution.  Typical measurement duration is about 1 minute per test.  The test procedures include different jumps for the analysis of individual anaerobic peak power, maximum voluntary muscular force and movement asymmetries.  The well-established chair rise test enables falls risk analysis in geriatrics and can measure muscle power during the test.  The multiple 1 leg hop (m1LH) is used to test peak muscle forces in the lower limb, where the participant is asked to hop on the ball of their dominant foot as hard and as fast as possible. The single 2 leg jump (s2LJ) is used to test peak muscle power where the participant jumps with both their feet as high as possible.
