b.seated / individualized bicycle seat

The design is adapted to the anthropometric requirements of the user. The distance between the user’s sitting bones is measured as these bear the body’s weight when seated and the sensitive areas require most protection or support. The design is individually adjusted to the CAD data deduced from the measurements and subsequently lent material form by generative manufacturing processes. Flexible elements take the position of the sitting bones into account and can be replaced to offer comfort and medically correct configurations which accord with the particular degree of hardness required for the intended riding distance to avoid impotence.
