Bertec Force Plates
Bertec's product line of force plates have been specifically designed for gait, balance, sports and other static and dynamic analyses. Through the use of strain gauge technology, innovative design, and quality manufacturing, Bertec's force plates are well suited for both static and dynamic applications. Each force plate consists of a number of strain gauged load transducer and a built-in digital pre-amplifier for signal conditioning. 

Qualisys: ProReflex Cameras (6)
Qualisys Track Manager is a Windows-based data acquisition software with an interface that allows the user to perform 2D and 3D motion capture. QTM is designed to provide both advanced features required by technically advanced users and a simple method of application for the inexperienced user. Together with the Qualisys line of optical measurement hardware, QTM will streamline the coordination of all features in a sophisticated motion-capture system and provide the possibility of rapid production of distinct and accurate 2D, 3D and 6D data.

During the capture, real time 2D, 3D and 6D camera information is displayed, allowing instant confirmation of accurate data acquisition. The individual 2D camera data is quickly processed and converted into 3D or 6D data by advanced algorithms, which are adaptable to different movement characteristics. The data can then be exported to analysis software via several external formats.

Trigno Wireless EMG System by Delsys
The Trigno Wireless EMG System is a battery-powered physiological monitoring device that enables researchers and clinicians to acquire ENG and related signals from subjects for biofeedback purposes.  It is intended for relaxation training and muscle reeducation.

The Trigno Wireless EMG System is a high-performing device designed to make EMG signal detection reliable and easy. Each EMG sensor has a built-in triaxial accelerometer, a transmission range of 20m and a rechargeable battery lasting a minimum of seven hours. The system is capable of streaming data to EMGworks Acquisition and Analysis software and generating 16 EMG and 48 accelerometer analog channels for integration with motion capture and other third-party data acquisition systems. Full triggering features further expand the possibility for integration with additional measurement technologies.

GAITRite
The GAITRite System is an electronic walkway utilized to measure the temporal (timing) and spatial (two-dimension geometric position) parameters of its pressure activated sensors. The GAITRite system's intent is to be utilized as a measuring device for the events occurring during biped and quadruped locomotion. Inferred parameters are easily obtained by applying common physics and math formulas to the directly measured temporal and spatial data, i.e. calculate velocity, relationships between spatial and temporal events, etc.
