A method for clinical studies of ground reaction forces during gait is presented. A walkway consisting of two force measuring platforms, each five meter long, allows the recording from several consecutive steps from both feet. Signals from photocells and goniometers have been added and a microcomputer system for on line recording and processing have been developed. The accuracy of the system is tested.
