Field Tests 

HIC testing

A Sports Labs engineer is seen here performing a simulated heel strike test to record the shock absorption of a pitch. The test uses an advanced artificial athlete that drops a heavy mass onto a spring onto a load measuring platen.  This test allows Sports Labs to characterise the properties of a sports surface for athletic performance and to "tune" sports surfaces for community or elite use.
