Double condition to find index

1 view (last 30 days)
I have force data from force plate and I try to determine the impact time/index.
For that, I need two conditions:
1) Data exceeds 20 newtons (>20)
2) Data exceeds 20 newtons for more than 50 milliseconds
I tried with for + if and with for using find fonction.
Do you have some idea to resolve that ?
Thank you so much.

The sample rate is 2000Hz

freq = 2000; %hz
threshold = 20; %newtons
significant_time = 50; %milliseconds
significant_samples = ceil(significant_time/1000 * freq);
mask = ForceData(:).' > threshold;
streak = repmat(1, 1, significant_samples);
starts = strfind([false mask], [0 streak]);
stops = strfind([mask false], [streak 0]);
At this point, starts and stops will be vectors the same length, in which ForceData(starts(K):stops(K)) is a run of samples that exceed the threshold for at least as long as you require.
