Instrumented Starting Blocks
AMTI’s removable instrumented starting block solution features a modified commercial starting block secured down to two of our BMS600900 force plates in a side-by-side configuration. The starting block rail is cut lengthwise, with left and right components securely bolted down to the force plates to maintain the high measurement quality provided by the Optima force platforms.
The Gill Fusion F10 starting block model shown features 8″x10″ pedals adjustable to four angular positions: 30, 40, 50 and 60 degrees. Visit the Gill Athletics website for more details.
AMTI can adjust the design to accommodate various models of commercial starting blocks, if needed. Alternate solutions featuring front-to-back split force plates (as opposed to side-by-side force plates) are available. The side-by-side configuration permits the ability to position the left and right foot pedals anywhere along the length of the rail. However, front-to-back split force plates will limit the possible foot pedal locations of the starting blocks, in order to avoid dual foot contact on one plate.
