Assessing wear from angled surfaces

How the SATRA Pedatron machine can be used to simulate walking up and down slopes.

SATRA's STM 528 Pedatron test machine was originally designed to undertake abrasion testing of footwear soles without the need for costly and time-consuming human wear trials. Abrasion testing of footwear is usually undertaken with a standard concrete paving slab as the test flooring, as stated in the SATRA TM362:2014 test – 'Abrasion resistance of soles – Biomechanical method'. However, any other type of flooring can be used during the assessment if required.
