A recessed force plate (AMTI Accugait System Model ACG, Watertown, Massachusetts, USA) with a 2.5 m runway aligned with its edges was used for data collection.
After the warm-up, subjects performed parallel BSQ with 0%, 12%, 27%, 42%, 56%, 71%, and 85% of their 1RM on a force plate (PH-6110A; DKH Co., Ltd.
The best delivery based on completeness of data capture (both markers and force plates) from each bowler was selected for analysis (Figure 3).
By comparing with the kinematic and kinetic data derived from the IMUs and referenced camera system and force plate, the accuracy and availability of the developed wearable sensor system were verified.

The patients placed their feet barefoot on four force plates (A, left heel; B, left toes; C, right heel; D, right toes) with arms at the side along the body and were asked to remain in the standing position, stable and immobile in eight different positions for 32 sec (Table 1).
Second, the cross force plate's position mounted in the platform might cause difficulty for participants to have adequate foot contact on the force plate.
In previous research, the body movements were usually measured by a camera-based motion capture system, and external forces were measured by a force plate. Because the measurement systems have inherent limitations in terms of mobility, this is only available within a laboratory environment and natural movement may be restricted by use of a fixed force plate.
Pre- and postoperative force plate analysis of dogs with experimentally transected cranial cruciate ligaments treated using tibial plateau leveling osteotomy.
The subjects performed 3 countermovement jumps (CMJ) with arm swing and 3 isometric mid-thigh pulls (IMTP) while standing on a force plate. During the IMTP, they performed maximum pulls for 3 sec inside a power rack.
Subjects walked over a force plate positioned in the middle of the walkway (Bertec; Columbus, Ohio).
