The energy of a falling object depends on its mass and how far it falls. The falling objects could be the footsteps of a nurse, footsteps on a treadmill during a PT session, or a dropped dumbbell.

1. In-room Impact Noise – sound level in room where the impact occurs
2. Transmitted Impact Noise – sound level in adjacent room, typically below impact
