Ground reaction forces (GRFs) and center of pressure trajectories (CoPs) are required for a comprehensive biomechanical analysis. They are also important outcome measures in sports sciences or clinical areas. GRFs and CoPs are usually measured by force plate, which is rarely equipped on staircases in laboratories. We present a one-dimensional convolutional neural network for estimating GRFs and CoPs during stair ascent and descent using multi-level of kinematics as input. We collected a dataset of 3782 trials from 172 subjects for training and validating this model, involving healthy subjects and individuals with knee osteoarthritis or with moderate-to-high risk of cardiovascular diseases. Our model achieves the state-of-the-art estimating performance with nRMSE of 2.755%~7.633%, Pearson correlation of 0.950~0.996 on GRFs estimation, and with nRMSE of 5.519%~14.669%, Pearson correlation of 0.918~0.991 on CoPs estimation. With the proposed model, GRFs and CoPs during stair walking can be achieved without force-plate-embedded staircases. The network architecture, the estimation model as well as some demo data are provided here.
