Portable, powerful, easy-to-use force plate system for analyzing jumps, strength, power, asymmetry and more.



Force plates made fast.portable.intuitive.affordable.easy.

No longer confined to research labs and elite sporting teams, ForceDecks’ lightweight, portable force plates and intuitive app make it easy to assess your athletes’ strength, movement, asymmetry and balance. No biomechanics degree required.

Whether you work in team sports, olympic sports, performing arts or first responders, you can use ForceDecks to benchmark, monitor and rehabilitate your athletes.



Easy to set up. Easy to use.

Historically, force plates were notoriously difficult to use and their data was notoriously difficult to interpret.

ForceDecks changes that. Simply pair with your plates via the ForceDecks app, select your patient, perform a test and watch their results appear immediately, in terminology that makes sense to you and your patient.


Assess jumps, strength, asymmetry and more.

ForceDecks automatically detects and assesses over 20 different movements, from squats to jumps and from isometric strength to functional tests such as sit-to-stand and balance assessments. There’s a test for almost any patient or musculoskeletal pathology.

ForceDecks Vision: Force data and video, together at last.

ForceDecks Vision helps makes complicated force data simple.

Just use your iPhone or iPad camera to capture video of your athletes as they perform any ForceDecks test, and your force data and footage is automatically synchronized, annotated and ready to jump to any key moment.

Is your athlete’s knee is collapsing at the end of the eccentric phase and resulting in force asymmetries? Simply tap, scrub and show them.

Introducing Norms: integrated normative data.

We know that force plate data can be intimidating and overwhelming. Norms help overcome these challenges.

A common question from athletes is “Was that result good?” With Norms, you can now answer that question with confidence.

Based on millions of data points and integrated directly into VALD Hub reports, Norms give you robust, reliable reference points and helps bring context to your athletes’ data.


Center of Pressure: the new standard for balance assessment.

ForceDecks measure not just how much force your athlete is producing, but where they’re applying it. Whether you’re working with extreme sports athletes, dancers or athletes with lower extremity injuries or concussions, Center of Pressure (CoP) allows you to assess a range of balance tasks with pinpoint accuracy.

Built for performance and portability.

ForceDecks dual, uniaxial force plates automatically detects and assesses over 20 different movements, including a range of jump types, isometric strength and functional tests such as squats and push-ups. There’s a test for almost any athlete, sport or performance goal.
