Increasing focus has been placed on player safety with the frequency and severity of concussions in football increasing. 10-15% of concussions are said to be a direct result of a player impacting with the surface. It is therefore imperative to monitor the forces involved in collisions.
ASTM developed their standard F1936 which focuses on the impact a surface returns to a player upon impact, whether it be with their head (HIC) or torso (gmax). The harder the surface, the higher the gmax rating – ASTM require no surface have a higher rating than 200g’s in any of the 10 testing locations across the field.
