METHOD FOR INTERPRETING FORCES AND TORQUES EXERTED BY A LEFT AND RIGHT FOOT ON A DUAL-PLATE TREADMILL
Gait analysis apparatus using a treadmill, comprising an endless belt, which is guided over at least two rollers and the upper surface of which serves as walking surface, a sensor system for determining a pressure/force distribution on a measurement plate located underneath the endless belt and having a plurality of pressure/force sensors arranged in a matrix on the side facing the treadmill belt, wherein the measurement plate comprising the plurality of pressure/force sensors arranged in a matrix is itself supported by at least one base force sensor and the analyzing unit comprises an additional signal input connected to a signal output of the base force sensor as well as an additional signal processing stage for processing the output signal of the or each base force sensor in terms of a calibration or correction signal processing of the output signals of the pressure/force sensors arranged in a matrix, respectively.
