Learning Outcomes
• Information of a new biomechanics lab that has been constructed at Colorado State University to conduct research into the effects of shoe and surface on athlete performance and injury risk
• Explaining the research by showing athletes performing jumping, landing, and cutting movements on resilient and non-resilient infill
• Discussing ground reaction force and joint loading differences on these two surfaces
• Demonstrating advancements in linear and torsional traction testing equipment and the research into the effects of use on crumb rubber infill particle size and impact loading properties
