Durometer is one of several measures of the hardness of a material. Hardness may be defined as a material's resistance to permanent indentation. The durometer scale was defined by Albert F. Shore, who developed a measurement device called a durometer in the 1920s. The term durometer is often used to refer to the measurement, as well as the instrument itself. Durometer is typically used as a measure of hardness in polymers, elastomers, and rubbers.
Basically the higher the durometer the harder the rubber is and the more vibrations are permitted to translate through the structure increasing the discomfort factor and potentially damaging things in the long run as things are made to take more strain/ stress than normal.
