THE BETTERGUARDS LAB
We do not just think our products are good –We know they are.
This confidence finds its roots in the various state-of-the-art testing platforms that we have constructed over the course of time, solely dedicated to the purpose of testing the Betterguards Technology and comparing the data to current protective systems on the market.
For our testing we are using artificial joints, people who test the products under real-life circumstances on a unique testing platform that is able to behave like a trapdoor underneath one foot and steady load test rigs for the determination of the longevity of our modules. The Betterguards Technology always succeeds regardless of the test you put it to.
This is one of our newest acquisitions which allows us to simulate real-life situations in which the ligaments of the ankle joint are overextended. Various high-tech sensors and high speed cameras allow us to monitor the acting forces as well as the degree of extension of the joint.
A pneumatic test rig whose powers endure, even when muscles begin to ache.
We use this test rig for R&D purposes, guaranteeing the implementation of highest quality standards while testing the basic longevity of our products. This allows us to ensure highest performance and unmatched results, even after hundreds of thousands of cycles that have been performed on our steady load test rig.
The High-Tensile test rig is a platform dedicated to the verification and validation of the Betterguards Technology.
It allows us to simulate the motion of twisting an ankle using artificial joints, as well as gathering data on the results our products achieve at different inversion speeds.
- Max. Speed of 1.2 m/s
- Max. Acceleration of 18 m/s²
- Endspeed of 180mm/s (after acceleration distance < 1 Millimeter)
