"Boats operating in the open ocean are subject to large shock and vibration forces. Exposure to such forces can lead to discomfort, spinal injuries and performance degradation, especially when exposed to forces in the vertical axis. SHOXS seats are specifically designed and engineered to reduce the risk of operator injury and impact exposure in harsh marine conditions."

"Our team are consistently raising the bar through innovative engineering and functional design. SHOXS are known for continuously integrating new technologies to improve ergonomics, durability and most importantly safety."

"The bottom line is we believe that a simpler and smarter seat is a safer seat. Our aim is to deliver a high level of service and expertise from the initial concept stage to final on-site delivery – anywhere in the world."

Dr Tim Rees - Analyst

"The SHOXS Development Lab is a global leader in shock mitigation research and design. We are committed to helping our clients by developing the tools they need to make informed decisions in selecting the seating solutions that best fit their application."

"Increased awareness of the hazards of WBV exposure has led to legislative directives to protect the health of employees, and employers are required to bring WBV to as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP)."

"The problem of reducing whole body vibrations (WBV) is a major concern to naval agencies and other operators of high-speed marine craft. In recent years, the growing demand for better protection has stimulated innovation in the shock-mitigating seat industry, and new testing methods have enabled our engineers and scientists to conduct systematic evaluations of seating alternatives. The SHOXS Development Lab combines simulation techniques with repeatable laboratory procedures to understand and improve the shock-mitigating seats we design."

"Our engineers address the challenges that face manufacturers in the design and deployment of new technologies. We understand the basic science and complex aspects involved in shock-mitigation. Recent experimental results and research are leading to even higher performance for the next evolution of products from SHOXS."
