Maximum performance and comfort onboard

Our technology enables you to design work environments that are optimal for human biomechanical performace, with minimal investment of your company’s resources. This helps you unlock vast improvements in the efficiency, performance and comfort of flight crews and passengers alike.

The European Space Agency’s (ESA) Research and Technology Centre and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Wyle Laboratories have also used our products and services to improve astronaut wellbeing, comfort and endurance during outer space missions.
