The SQlab ERGOWAVE®: Performance based Ergonomics

The SQlab ERGOWAVE®: Performance based Ergonomics

Created from a SQlab research project in collaboration with the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences and the University Clinic Of Frankfurt, and funded by the Federal Ministry of Economy and Technology. For the fi rst time in a research project, the forces involved and the maximum load limits between a person and a bike saddle were able to be calculated down to the deepest structures of the body. The end result is the new ERGOWAVE® saddle shape for a more aggressive seating position on road and MTB bikes which gives the absolute best numbers below the maximum load limits in all tests.
