ASK THE EXPERT: Furniture & Furnishings
What is an ergonomic seat anyway?
The applied science of ergonomics is concerned with designing products, systems or processes to take proper account of the interaction between them and the people who use them while maximising comfort, efficiency of use and safety. STIDD brought its expertise in the biomechanical human factors field and introduced it to the marine industry 26 years ago when it designed and manufactured seating for the USCG 47-foot Heavy Weather Patrol & Rescue Motor Life Boat (MLB).
Designed to operate in extreme conditions to save lives, today’s fleet of 47MLBs and Response Boat Medium (RB-M) continue to rely on STIDD seating. Today mariners of all types worldwide have come to realize the importance of ergonomics and that the crew’s comfort ultimately improves performance, alertness and safety – and no one does that better than STIDD.
Is the STIDD seat a converted car seat?
No, STIDD seats are built and designed from the ground up to be marine seats – they are not converted truck or auto-motive seats. STIDD seats are corrosion resistant (CRES), built to Navy standards using CNC manufacturing techniques and proprietary materials.
What types of seats are available from STIDD?
STIDD offers a complete line of ergonomic marine seating – low back, high back, double seats, shockmitigating seats, box mounts, motorized seats and more, for boats of all sizes.
