EVAL-ADXL001-500Z Output and possible amplifier

I am working on a project where we are trying to measure high accelerations during a drop test.  The EVAL-ADXL001-500Z accelerometer evaluation board has the specifications that we are looking for in terms of measurement abilities, but I need know more about the board's output.  We would like to collect our data from the sensor in LabView, which accepts a voltage range from -10V to 10V.  What would like to find out is: what is the voltage output for the -500 to 500g sensor and what amplifier would you recommend to create a signal between -10 and 10 volts (or around that)?
