Description:  Kinelysis for Windows is a cross platform program for analyzing Kinetic force platform data to calculate the center of pressure and related parameters. The software can accept the forces and moments data from a number of commercial and noncommercial systems' files to process the data. These include (i) Peak Performance System's Analysis Sampling Module (copyright Peak Performance, Inc., Englewood, CO.), Sway Win Program (copyright AMTI, Watertown, MA), and Posture (copyright University of Cincinnati).
The program offers a broad variety of options including the choice of force plates, type of experiments (gait or static balance), and many other related options. The variables to be calculated and the output format can be interactively determined. The program also offers plotting and printing of the parameters. Sway area and sway length, critical to determination of postural stability, are calculated based on the publications by Dr. A. Bhattacharya, Director, Biomechanics-Ergonomics Research Laboratory, Department of Environmental Health, University of Cincinnati.
