Gmax and HIC (Head Impact Criterion) testing in Colorado Springs, Colorado
All natural and artificial football surfaces require gmax and HIC testing to ensure they are not posing unnecessary risks to the users.
Gmax & HIC tests replicate the impact generated between the surface and the player, doing this we can measure the impact the player absorbs upon impact. Gmax replicates a players torso whilst the HIC test replicates the force absorbed by their head, this is important to monitor and control as it directly relates to the risks of sustaining injury/concussion.
To effectively monitor surface conditions and player safety testing should be carried out biannually.
