Passive Shock Isolation For Planing Boat Seats

The results are that they were able to address injuries and fatigue of the personnel, speed at which they could travel and thus addressing time as well.

The Key to this project is that the shock isolator is optimized for various sea state conditions. The injury realized by operators would be minimized both in calm sea states to protect against the cumulative vibration through the spine and also to protect against large impacts realized during heavy sea states. The shock isolator was optimized for all conditions.
