Military / Professional Shock Mitigating Solutions
Shoxs Suspension Seating
Shock and vibration in small craft operating at high speed in anything other than calm conditions can be severe enough to cause injuries and damage to equipment. A survey of US Navy Special Boat Unit boat operators found that over 70% reported one or more injuries to the lower back, knee, or shoulder. Nearly all of these injuries occurred on the job.
We, at Shoxs, work closely with public and private defense and patrol agencies worldwide to understand their specific needs and requirements. You'll find us on major small-boat programs in the US Coast Guard, US Navy, US Customs and Border Patrol, UK Ministry of Defence, and the Canadian Special Forces. Our in-house shock and vibration specialists continually advise defense organizations of all sizes on solutions and strategies to limit harmful impact exposure encountered on the job.
