Lafayette 16030 Stability Platform

The Stability Platform measures balancing ability, which is essential to successfully performing many activities. The Model 16030 Stability Platform features fully integrated timing functions for test control and electronic angle measurement for unsurpassed accuracy. The platform control allows a wide range of user settable parameters including variable test times, selectable angle limits, and digital tilt angle readout. With the Stability Platform's rugged design and electronic capabilities, it will provide many years of reliable operation.

Features

  • Electronic tilt angle measurements with digital angle readout
  • User selectable balance thresholds for left, right and center zones
  • Platform re-zero ability
  • Built-in timing functions for test and rest timing
  • Built-in repeat cycle counter for multiple trials
  • Built-in display for test data
  • Test Parameter storage
  • Analog output voltage proportional to tilt angle
  • Event marker to indicate test and rest intervals
  • Tone indicator to signal beginning and end of tests
  • Friction Free tilt action
  • Remote start

Benefits

  • Provides for accurate measurement
  • Removes guess work in setting the limits
  • Zero is relative for unique experiment designs
  • No external timer required
  • One test period or many, its your choice
  • Easy to read LCD puts all the information in one place
  • Repeating the experiment is easy with saved protocols
  • Compatible with data acquisition systems
  • Allows for synchronization of other data or systems
  • Ques the subject on test start and end
  • No tactile or audible feedback when limit crossed
  • Allows for greater flexibility in experiment design
