How does Oregon Aero offer the most comfortable seat in the industry?
Oregon Aero seat designs shift the occupant's hips, pelvis, lumbar, and upper body into the proper, pain-free sitting position. The proper sitting position permits the body to remain erect without effort, reducing fatigue and pain.
Oregon Aero Seating support occupants evenly over the cushion surface preventing ischemia, a condition commonly referred to as "hot spots." Our visco-elastic cushion materials adjust with body temperature and pressure permitting unrestricted blood flow. Oregon Aero cushions conform to the shape of the occupant.
"It sounds simple—to make a comfortable seat—but if it were, it would have been done long before we achieved it," says Mike Dennis, Founder, President, and CEO of Oregon Aero. "Each problem that prevents comfortable seating may be a small problem, but they all add up to create a big problem—pain—and they all need to be solved at the same time. When one problem is solved, another is created or amplified; that’s the way the engineering process works. But add to this the sensitivity of the human body to being in contact with manufactured hardware, and the engineering challenge becomes even greater. We are experts in addressing that human body/equipment interface."
