Digital Acquire™

Bertec® Digital Acquire™ is designed to collect data from multiple force measuring devices and save it to either a text file or Matlab v4 compatible file. The text file can be formatted as either a comma-separated or tab-separated file so that spread sheet programs such as Microsoft® Excel or OpenOffice easily be used to read and analyze data. Any version of Matlab from version 4 and upwards can read the Matlab file.

We provide Digital Acquire to our customers with non-balance force plates, and also make it available online for download in case their original CDROM disk has been lost or damaged.

Digital Acquire™ version 4.12 build 503
