HIC (Head Injury Criterion) & GMAX in Romney, West Virginia
When a player falls and impacts with the surface, this impact is absorbed by either the player or the surface. Gmax testing ensures the surface is of high enough quality to absorb sufficient impact, thus minimising the likelihood of injury. The HIC test is specific to likelihood of injury on the head, rather than the torso which the Gmax test is designed for.
A fields gmax rating deteriorates with age, it is therefore advised that testing should be carried out at least 1-2 times per year to effectively monitor the conditions of the playing surface.
