Armstrong Flooring partnered with the Bioengineering Department at the University of Pittsburgh to understand the influence of flooring on fatigue and comfort when walking for long periods of time.
The research lab measured muscle fatigue using electromyography (EMG), captured ground reaction forces (GRF) with force plates beneath the flooring, and administered questionnaires to gauge discomfort, fatigue and flooring preference. When compared to 2 mm vinyl sheet and 2 mm rubber flooring, Rejuvenations Restore eases discomfort of joints and muscles, lessens potential for fatigue, and reduces overall tiredness and discomfort in feet. And because it features Diamond 10 Technology coating, floors look newer, longer as a result of category-leading scratch, stain, and scuff resistance — all to provide the durability required in high-traffic healthcare settings.
