BENNEWART flexing machine

What does it test:

It test the resistance of soles on flexing movements.

Why is it important:

The anatomy of walking requires flexing of the shoe in the metatarsal area. Consistent sole flexing can cause cracks, which lead to reduction of functional characteristics of sole and whole footwear (comfort, water resistance‚??). By pre-testing a producer can identify potential problems and anticipate cracking of the sole, which causes customers‚?? dissatisfaction and increases his purchase costs.
