  • Force plates (Leonardo, Kistler, AMTI)
  • Hand grip dynamometer (i.e. Jamar Puls, Jamar)
  • Judo ergometer system (JERGo, FES Berlin)
  • Pressure-sensitive gait analysis system FDM-T for h/p/cosmos quasar med (zebris)
  • NordBord - system to monitor hamstring strength and muscle imbalances (VALD Performance)
  • FiTRODYNE power and speed analyzer (Tendo Sports Machine, Trenchin, Slovak Republic)

2.)    Kinematic apparatus

  • Ten camera 3D motion capturing system (Vicon)
  • Photocell system (WITTY; Microgate)
  • Gait and jump analyses system (OptoGait, OptoJump; Microgate)
  • High-speed cameras (Basler)
  • GaitUp Gait Analysis - PhysiGait Lab (GaitUp)
  • GaitUp Gait Running Analysis - PhysiRun Lab (GaitUp)

3.)    Posturography

  • Reactive balance platform (i.e., Posturomed, Haider), including an instrumented perturbation unit
