Shock Attenuation testing in Mountain View, California and throughout America to ASTM F1936
Gmax testing is now regarded as a fundamental test to measure player safety whilst using a artificial or natural playing surface. The magnitude of forces players a subjected to in football are immense – it is predicted that 10-15% of concussions are due to head collisions with the surface – it is therefore imperative to measure the force involved in such collisions. Gmax and HIC testing are designed to replicate the collision between the surface and a players torso (gmax) and head (HIC). The forces are measures using these tests, carried out to test method ASTM F355, and judgements are made if the surface is fit for use according to ASTM F1936.
