  1. Degrees of freedom (1, 121) for each effect
  2. F F statistic, η p 2 partial eta squared, NS not significant
  3. *P ≤ 0.05 was significant
  4. aIf P is significant, mean differences recorded from pairwise comparisons for state (dry–wet), elastomer (yes–no), and interaction of state + elastomer
