AMTI designs and manufactures the industry standards in force measurement devices, orthopedic implant testing machines, and other specialty instruments. Our joint motion simulators, like our knee simulator and our hip simulator, are relied on by most major implant manufacturers. Our force measurement devices, like our force plates and force sensors, are similarly well-used among clinical researchers in areas such as biomechanics, gait analysis and ergonomics.
AMTI Pitch-and-Roll Treadmill
AMTIs Pitch-and-Roll Treadmill captures the reaction forces and moments generated by a persons gait and is capable of inclining (front to back) and pitching (side to side) +/- 25 degrees. The treadmills split-belt design allows for each foot strike to be isolated on the two AMTI force plates that make up the working surface.

AMTI Force Plate-Mounted Stairs
AMTI's Force Plate Stairway isolates the forces and moments generated during each of four consecutive steps and transfers them to one of two attached force plates. This video, produced by C-Motion's Visual3D, shows force vectors that represent the ground reaction forces recorded by the FP-Stairs and its attached AMTI force plates.
AMTI Optima Human Performance System - High Accuracy Force Platforms
Using AMTI's new optimized strain gage technology, the Optima HPS provides levels of accuracy never before seen in force platform systems. AMTI verifies the accuracy of each Optima system through a proprietary Precision Calibration that takes up to 4000 measurements throughout the platform's entire rated capacity. This process uses a high-density calibration grid that covers the entire platform surface and uses fully documented NIST-traceable standards.
AMTI | Logemas - Force Platform Installation Time Lapse at La Trobe University Melbourne
This video illustrates methods and procedures for installing AMTI's Modular Rail System performed by Logemas at La Trobe University Melbourne. AMTI platforms should be mounted in a manner that minimizes vibration of the force platform. The preferred method is to bolt the force platform to a flat plate or rail that is bonded with epoxy to a solid foundation, such as concrete. AMTI Modular Rail Systems (MRS) are designed for this procedure. In the video, Logemas demonstrates the process of laying out and epoxying a modular rail system through the use of colored bars.

AMTI | Wake Forest University | Wake Forest Baptist Health - Pitching Lab
The instrumented pitching mound in the Wake Forest Pitching Lab features 3 AMTI multi-axis force plates: 1 under the pitching rubber and 2 under the stride leg landing zone. The plates were used in conjunction with an 18 ft. diameter fiberglass pitching mound provided by The Perfect Mound. Wake Forest Athletics and Wake Forest Baptist Health teamed up to develop this state-of-the-art biomechanics and pitching lab. The facility was created with the aim of developing Wake Forest student-athletes and to transform the game of baseball. LINK: http://www.wakeforestpitchinglab.com/
