Gold sponsor


It is with great pleasure that we announce Bertec Corporation as the newest Gold Level sponsor to provide support to the ISB.

Please read on for an overview of Bertec's biomechanical history and contemporary offerings.

Bertec's products have represented a legacy of excellence in biomechanics for over thirty years. We provide solutions founded in accuracy and precision. Our engineering is trusted worldwide to enable a deeper understanding of human movement in research, performance, and clinical applications. Bertec portable and fixed force plates are designed for gait, balance, and performance analyses. Our patented strain gauge technology, innovative transducer designs, and quality manufacturing help you capture the highly accurate data needed for your research. Bertec force plates lead the industry in center of pressure and force measurement accuracy with negligible crosstalk, drift, and signal interference. Analog signals sampled internally at 1000Hz are immediately processed by our custom electronics into digital data impervious to degradation. 

Bertec Fully Instrumented Treadmill with Instrumented Handrails as an Option. The Bertec Fully Instrumented Treadmill allows researchers to reduce gait laboratory space requirements and remove the limitations inherent in a traditional gait walkway. The unique design results in superior dynamic characteristics and a high natural frequency making it the best research-grade fully instrumented treadmill available on the market and the only one with the option for instrumented handrails! 

Bertec’s Instrumented Stairs with Instrumented Handrails as an Option. A one-of-a-kind solution. Measure ground reaction forces and assess mobility on customizable instrumented stairs. Because the stairs are on wheels and the force plates are easily detachable, the instrumented stairs have maximum portability. Use stand-alone force plates or add instrumented handrails to capture upper arm data as well.
