Air Resistance in Fall Protection

Ever wonder what kind of distance a human would need to fall in order to reach terminal velocity? We’re going to explore the science associated with a falling human this week by diving into the physics behind fall forces and why you’ll never reach terminal velocity on our systems!

How does gravity and acceleration impact fall protection?

Gravity is the force that keeps us grounded. It can be our best friend or our worst enemy depending on a variety of different factors. So what can the human body tolerate when it comes to acceleration and G-forces? What are the different variables that factor into the way that acceleration and gravity influences our lives? This week’s blog is all about how the human body responds to acceleration (and maybe a little bit of the physical theory behind it…).
