As the lifeblood of the U.S. economy, the trucking industry employs millions of professional drivers to deliver approximately 95 percent of the nation’s goods. To keep freight moving, over-the-road drivers spend up to 11 hours a day in their trucks, withstanding a ride much worse than a passenger car. Even with the best conventional air-ride seats, over-the-road drivers experience constant road-induced vibration – a form of whole-body vibration. Independent scientific research has shown that whole-body vibration can reduce comfort, add to fatigue, increase stress on the spine and body, and impact visual perception. These factors can lower driver performance and contribute to many of the industry’s challenges, including driver retention, health care costs, and accidents – factors that impact and disrupt business.
