In the Mining, Construction and Transport industries, drivers spend long hours behind the wheel. As the pressure of sitting for long periods builds up, they suffer pain in the lower back and numbness of the buttocks.
Over time this can lead to more serious problems because the body tries to adjust unconsciously to relive the pressure. Drivers move and try to stretch to keep their circulation going which means the pressure is redirected to other parts of the body.
This results in backache and fatigue. The distraction and the loss of focus is dangerous.
AIRHAWK Heavy Machinery Cushions can be fully customised to suit the shape and body weight of any driver with each cushion containing a series of interconnected air cells that mimic the properties of water and work to redistribute weight from pressure points and improve circulation.
