  • Seat vibration - Responses

    A small start-up company contacted me recently interested in learning what
    has and can be done in the scientific study of seat vibration. They have
    developed what they consider to be a superior seat for bicycles, trucks,
    motorcycles, etc. and would like to know what we know about foam and gel
    seats. I think that they might be interested in sponsoring some research on
    their seat.

    I did not find any similar question in the BIOMECH-L archives. If you have
    personal knowledge on such topics, or if you have literature or a person
    that you would recommend, please let me know. I will post a summary of the
    results on BIOMECH-L and will also share this summary with the interested
    small company.

    Thanks - Glenn Fleisig, Ph.D.

    My dissertation is entitled "Distribution of Cycling-Induced Saddle
    Stresses." The purpose was to determine the force distribution on 3
    different bicycle saddle shapes. I am currently unemployed and seeking a
    biomechanics position west of the Mississippi River.
