A head impact from a few inches above a concrete or acrylic surface can cause a concussion. Sport Court surfaces are significantly more forgiving and reduce the likelihood of serious head injuries from a fall, and they provide more protection against impact injuries to wrists, arms, knees and shoulders compared to other hard-court surfaces.
Too much lateral movement is like trying to change direction while running on ice; you keep sliding. Not enough lateral movement can create strain on your muscles and joints. Sport Court's Lateral Forgiveness feature allows for slight movement between tiles to absorb the transition forces generated from sudden shifts in direction, reducing the risk of muscle and joint injuries.
Shock absorption is the ability of the surface to absorb the energy of an impact. Sport Court surfaces feature patented, vertical shock-absorbing grids to reduce the risk of short- and long-term injuries.
