HIC & Gmax testing in Clarksburg, West Virginia
The two field tests recognized in the athletic industry for determining impact resilience are GMAX, and HIC (Head Injury Criterion) testing. Both the gmax and HIC tests measure impact attenuation, or the amount of force a playing surface absorbs upon impact. Higher gmax test values reflect a surface which is absorbing less impact and therefore returning more force to the athlete. It is generally advised that testing be carried out twice per year to effectively monitor changing conditions.
