I am writing to bring to your attention an issue related to the official suppliers of USA Gymnastics and International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) events, AAI FOTL, and ABEO (Spieth America and Janssen Fritsen), respectively.
As the governing body and de factor provider of apparatus for gymnastics in the United States, it is crucial that USA Gymnastics prioritizes the safety and well-being of their athletes.
In the 1990's they worked on a spring floor that had two different length springs, a softer/longer spring for lighter gymnasts coupled with a stiffer/shorter spring that would take the impact of heavier and more powerful gymnasts. They found this was a good combination for meeting the different needs of heavy and light gymnasts. Weller accomplishes this in ONE spring!
Closer matched response to the natural frequency of the athlete on take off. Meets FIG Specifications.
Weller never goes "solid" or bottoms. out. Resultant Forces are reduced on Weller vs. Cylindrical and Foam.
Weller is the first significant improvement to the spring floor in over 40 years.
Resultant Forces are reduced on Weller vs. Cylindrical and Foam.
Impulse is the force when momentum changes. The impulse force and impulse duration are reduced on Weller.
A high rate of force development on the downward motion cushions the athlete. A low rate of force development on the upward motion is easier on the athlete.
