Innovate towards better mobility and endurance

Our technology helps you create equipment and work environments that optimally tradeoff human endurance, performance and comfort. Our products and services help you builder better crew and combat vehicles, safer protective equipment and improve mobility and efficiency of personnel.

Applications

  • Vehicle crew compartment design 
  • Ergonomic cockpit layout
  • Seating comfort - H-point, lumbar support etc.
  • Evaluating military exoskeletons (read more here)
  • Designing for population anthropometry
  • Helmets analysis - neck pain
  • Ingress/egress analysis - mobility, effort etc.
  • Hatch & door operation
  • Optimal man-machine interfaces 
  • Pre-collision occupant response 
  • Load bearing equipment - analysis & design
         and more...
