The Athletic Propulsion Labs™ Load ‘N Launch™ technology has been tested by some of the most respected experts in the field. A world-renowned spring testing institute in Taiwan conducted independent tests on the Load ‘N Launch™ device in January 2010. The institute is charged with testing suspension bridge mechanisms for roadways, tension levels as well as response rates for springs in sophisticated watches and other mechanisms. In testing conditions using a level of force exerted by an individual weighing 175 pounds, the institute reported a “measurable increase in rebound effect” provided by the Load ‘N Launch™ device. This is the added boost that basketball players all around the world have been dreaming about for years.
In late January 2010 at a major California university biomechanical testing facility under the supervision and administration of two independent, world-class PhD experts in the field of biomechanics, energy return and vertical leap, the Athletic Propulsion Labs™ basketball shoes, once again, produced amazing results. The Load ‘N Launch™ system enabled the test participants to register a meaningful increase in their vertical leap and vertical velocity of takeoff, both in the absolute and when compared to high-priced basketball shoes from a major athletic footwear company known for its quality and performance.
These tests were conducted using Kistler Force Plates to measure maximal effort standing vertical jumps. The testing also included the use of the VERTEC vertical leap measurement device used in the NBA and NFL draft combines. Athletic Propulsion Labs™ measured the vertical velocity of takeoff “VTO” and jump height (Sto-pk) determined by the vertical displacement from takeoff to the peak of the jump.
