" We strongly believe that R&D can be made faster with higher output and this is the DNA all our products carry with them. You can rest assured that with a ForceBoard system you will gain knowledge much faster which will save you a great deal of time and money. Ever since we started in 2012 we have seen this happen over and over again for our customers!


When you invest in a measurement system your goal as the end user should always be to maximize the functionality over total cost relationship, including recurring costs like re-calibration and annual maintenance. There are very few, if any, desktop force measurement systems that can compete with ForceBoard™ in this aspect. Its modularized design and open software means that you don't have to adapt to the ForceBoard system - it adapts to you. And it will not let you down. "
