Abstract/Contents:"Ground reaction platforms (91 cm long, 76 cm wide, and 25 cm high) were constructed during the summer of 2020 at the University of Georgia, Athens, GA. Sides of the platform were constructed out of pressure treated 5.1-cm x 20.3-cm wood while the base of the platform was covered with 1.3-cm plywood. A 51-cm x 61-cm rectangle was removed from the center of the base leaving a 15-cm rectangular frame around the base for insertion of a portable force plate. The platform was surrounded with 5.1-cm x 25.4-cm wood using bolts to create a 5.1-cm elevation so the force plate fits inside the opening while remaining flush with the base of the platform. The interior of the platform was lined with 3-mil plastic affixed to the surfaces of the box. Holes were drilled through the plastic and base frame to allow for drainage. A fiberglass mesh was placed on the underside of the base frame to retain sand while still allowing for drainage. Each platform was filled to three depths (5.1, 10.2, and 15.2 cm) with a USGA spec sand mixture. Washed hybrid bermudagrass sod (Tifway 419) was transplanted into each platform containing one of the three sand depths. Platforms were placed in the greenhouse and allowed to mature. University-level recreational athletes will be recruited for evaluation using these platforms. A Bertec portable force plate along with an eight-camera Qualisys Motion Capture System will collect kinetic and kinematics data of athletic tasks performed by participants. Initially, athletes will perform tasks directly in contact with the force plate surface. Secondly, athletes will perform tasks on each of the three ground reaction platforms with the portable force plate inserted underneath. We will analyze vertical ground reaction force at two points; initial contact with the ground and peak vertical ground reaction force."
