Mining Shuttle Car Seating

SunMate cushions absorb the constant vibration, jolts and impact energy heavy equipment operators experience, improving health conditions and creating a more comfortable work environment. Don't take our word for it though, read the details in the study performed by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH):

NIOSH Study Highlights SunMate's Shock Absorption Capability

Vibrations of different frequencies cause pain and discomfort in different parts of the body. NIOSH studied different cushion combinations looking for the best solution for minimizing disturbing impacts and vibrations on mining seats, while withstanding the jolting and extreme changes in temperature and humidity endured by mining car operators.
