A high incidence of back, knee, hip and neck injuries to the crews of High Speed Craft can affect individual, group and organisational performance.
Shaped By Experience
Professional RIB and High Speed Craft operators can be on the water in high and low temperatures for extended periods and in extreme sea conditions.
We have used RIBs and High Speed Craft for over twenty years and have specialist knowledge relating to the onset of injury, injury recovery and injury prevention.
Sitting & Standing
Good seating is essential and in certain conditions helmsman, crew and passengers benefit from standing and using the body’s own suspension system.
All crew and passengers need to maintain good posture sitting and standing plus be aware of how the body reacts to certain boat movements in various sea states.
Work Station Layouts
A shock mitigation strategy includes the Man Machine Interface (MMI). This is how operators are sitting or standing and how their positions alter as conditions change.
Inefficient and badly planned equipment layouts plus poor work station ergonomics can lead to biomechanical problems that result in injury to the human body.
Ergonomics & Biomechanics
Ergonomics is the study of how a workplace and the equipment used there can best be designed for comfort, safety, efficiency, and productivity.
Biomechanics is the study of the mechanics of the human body, especially the forces exerted by muscles and gravity on the skeletal structure.
