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.
