Biomechanics and Injuries

The human body is equipped with a complex system reflexes, developed and evolved to protect the individual from injury. Some of these reflexes are designed to trigger reactions in our muscles, to optimize the protection against impacts.  They muscular response is obvious in our legs, but are also at hand in our arms, torsos and necks. The muscles react to the impact by contracting, so that they serve as shock absorbers and stabilize the spine. Sitting in a traditional seat always puts your...

Shock Mitigation

The human body has a complex system of muscular reflexes, developed and evolved to protect us from injury. Reflexes are designed to trigger reactions in our muscles, to protect us against impacts. This muscular response is obvious in our legs, but is also at hand in our arms, torsos and necks. When muscles react to impact, they contract - to serve as shock absorbers - and to stabilise the spine and joints. The progressive patented suspension system and the synergies with the biologic response,...

Fatigue

Human Performance of High-Speed Boat Operators Travelling on high-speed boats is physically exhausting. Energy consumption makes you very tired and affects physical performance. Ullman suspension seats significantly reduce energy consumption compared to fixed seating. Running performance is significantly reduced in military personnel after a high-speed transit when using fixed seats. Using Ullman Jockey Seats increases post-transit physical performance and endurance by 30.5 % compared to fixed...

Biomechanics Animations

Biomechanics Animations The human body is equipped with a complex system reflexes, developed and evolved to protect the individual from injury. These animations show what happens to the body in free fall and impact, when using conventional seats, and Ullman suspension seats respectively....
