See our crash track in use in the biomechanics laboratory. It has the potential to decelerate a payload of up to 100kg at up to 100g from up to 15m/s. It is possible to programme different pulse shapes. 
This video, made by Brady Haran for Easter, features many of our facilities including the Instron materials tester, a Charpy impact tester, 2m drop tower and crash track. More information is available about the experiment on Brady Haran's blog
