Safety Critical Seating

People need good quality seats for comfort,  safety and wellbeing. Travelling at speed in rough conditions on land and sea with variable violent vibration and sometimes hostile environments requires extra safety critical seating for personnel protection, healthcare and survivability.

When designing seats, we need to  take account of overall ergonomics, design constraints, maneuverability and weight.

VSS International Limited (VSSI) design and manufacture safety critical seating. Very often with vehicle design, the seating needs of drivers and passengers are a last thought. At VSSI, we believe that supplying the very best in seated safety and comfort leads to happier, healthier better protected travelers and more cost effective seating solutions. What’s more in today’s litigious society employers need to be aware that poor seats could be the cause of serious injuries or worse.

Safety critical seats and seating systems tailor-made for end user comfort and care

Catering For Basic Physiological Needs

There are two basic requirements:

  1. People need to be protected against injuries from accidents, collisions, continuous whole body vibration (WBV) and large shocks.
  2. People travelling for long periods need to be comfortable and to arrive without the stresses, aches and pains associated with poorly designed seats.

Many seats take little account of physiological needs. Prolonged sitting in poorly made chairs can be extremely bad for health. Most lower back conditions are aggravated by long periods of seated posture. Muscles become acclimatised to being in a certain position and can begin to feel tired and stiff. Continuous  whole body vibration gradually increases pressure on the lower back leading to pain and discomfort.

Getting up and moving around every so often helps but better seat design will alleviate potential muscular back pain condition.
