Dear BIOMCH-L Netters,

Now I am invoving in a Senior Project which is the study of the
realtionship between Impact Force and Different Flooring.

I need some information such as:

1. Is there any regulation from OSHA or NIOSH on the flooring in Olympic
Game or any other game, like Martial Arts, Wrestling...?

2. Any study in this area, such as the comparison of the ability
to absorb the impact force on different material and different thick.

3. The Safety and Injury issue on the flooring in sports activity.

Any suggestions, leads, references, discussion would be greatly
appreciated. I will post any responses I receive.

Thank you in advance.
