Research Study - Validation of a motion capture system for deriving accurate ground reaction forces

Objective: the purpose of this project was to compare the vertical ground reaction forces obtained from a force plate with calculated GRFs derived from a motion capture system

These results indicate that ground reaction forces can be accurately derived from a motion capture system without the use of a force plate. Additionally, the large volumes of raw data were easily and rapidly analyzed using the easily customized software program. These results indicate that intricate kinetic characteristics of human motion can be validly determined without being restricted to performing on a force plate.
