"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 does not let you down

With a ForceBoard system you will gain knowledge much faster which will save both time and money, since we started in 2012 we have seen this happen over and over again for our customers!"
