The present study was designed to illustrate shock attenuation characteristics of natural turf as a target property for long pile artificial turf (3-g turf) and to compare the property with that of existing 3-g turf systems. A recently proposed new high loading test was conducted to detect the initial state of shock attenuation property of natural turfs with two different bases (sod and sand base) and of 3-g turfs with three different infills (sand, rubber and sand/rubber). Clear differences…

A novel comparison between standard and new testing procedures to assess shock absorbency of third generation artificial turfs

This study aims to re-examine to what extent the testing procedure of the Artificial Athlete Berlin (DIN18032) is a valid evaluation method to assess the shock absorbency of third generation

The literature evidence of interactions between sports shoes and sports surfaces leads to the suggestion that sports shoe and sports surface companies should work together in the development of ideal shoe - surface combinations for particular groups of subjects.

Risk of injury on artificial turf and natural grass in young female football players

The overall risk of acute injuries was similar between artificial turf and natural grass among young female football players, and there was a trend towards more ankle sprains on artificial turf than on grass.

Risk of injury associated with rugby union played on artificial turf

The results indicate that the overall risks of injury on artificial turf are not significantly different from those experienced on grass; however, the difference in the incidence of anterior cruciate ligament injuries on the two surfaces is worthy of further study.

A Review of Football Injuries on Third and Fourth Generation Artificial Turfs Compared with Natural Turf

Clinification of effects of artificial surfaces on muscle and knee injuries are required given inconsistencies in incidence rate ratios depending on the football code, athlete, gender or match versus training.

Risk of injury in elite football played on artificial turf versus natural grass: a prospective two-cohort study

No evidence of a greater risk of injury was found when football was played on artificial turf compared with natural grass, but the higher incidence of ankle sprain on Artificial turf warrants further attention, although this result should be interpreted with caution as the number of ankle sprains was low.

Soccer injuries in Iceland

Significantly more injuries occurred on artificial turf than on grass or gravel in correlation to number of hours in games and practices in 1991.

Comparison of the incidence, nature and cause of injuries sustained on grass and new generation artificial turf by male and female football players. Part 2: training injuries

There were no major differences between the incidence, severity, nature or cause of training injuries sustained on new generation artificial turf and on grass by either men or women.

Elite football on artificial turf versus natural grass: Movement patterns, technical standards, and player impressions

The running activities and technical standard were similar during games on artificial turf and natural grass, however, fewer sliding tackles and more short passes were performed during gameson artificial turf, which could partly explain the male players' negative impression of artificial turf.

Comparison of the incidence, nature and cause of injuries sustained on grass and new generation artificial turf by male and female football players. Part 1: match injuries

There were no major differences in the incidence, severity, nature or cause of match injuries sustained on new generation artificial turf and grass by either male or female players.
