Operator Fatigue and Injury

“My people are too worn out from operating the vehicle to work an entire shift”

Severe off-road duty can result in significant oscillation of a suspended operator’s seat. Whether it’s military or commercial, an inadequately-damped seating system can lead to operator fatigue with its attendant safety issues and in extreme cases, back injuries caused by the seat hitting the end stops too frequently because of a combination of rough terrain and high vehicle speed. Active damping incorporating the proprietary General Kinetics Ride State Aware™ algorithm is proven to mitigate oscillation and eliminate end stop contact, resulting in healthier, happier operators who can work a full shift without violating and OHS standards relating to whole-body vibration, and minimize the risk of a back injury.
