The aspects of health, safety and comfort form the core of ISRI seat development. Biological functions and needs of the human body as well as a close examination of the work situation guide our seat design. Our experts work closely together in the functional areas of development, design and ergonomics in order to combine all requirements for an ergonomic seat.
Seat development for humans.
To meet the requirements of an ergonomically designed seat, it is important to understand the human body with its biological functions and needs.
It is also necessary to take a close look at the work situation:
In what way is the seat used?
How many hours a day is it used?
What conditions must be met to improve working conditions?
These are the tasks we set ourselves in order to ensure that the driver can adjust the seat optimally and so improve health and well-being.
Why is movement important and how can we introduce more movement into the driver’s working day?
The body needs movement to help activate its metabolism and circulation to remain attentive and reactive. The spine and its intervertebral discs need movement to ensure the exchange of nutrients, which helps keeping the spine supple, flexible and able to absorb vertical shocks. In the long-term, an unequal distribution strain along the spine, resulting from an unhealthy seating position, is an additional risk factor related to lack of movement.
This is why, as part of the project “Movement in the Workplace,” we are continually researching new seat concepts that stimulate active driver movement and stop drivers from remaining in a static posture while they are seated.
Anatomically shaped and movably mounted seat contact surfaces follow the intuitive movement patterns of the driver while sitting. The positive effects of free movement benefit to the driver's metabolism while driving.
A good sitting posture is essential to stay attentive to both the controls and traffic. However, it can also lead to complaints due to a permanently crooked or constant sitting posture. Consciously changing the sitting posture even while driving by adjusting the backrest or seat cushion tilt is particularly important.
It is therefore important to become familiar with the correct sitting posture.
