CHANDLER, Ariz., July 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Elliptical Mobile Solutions LLC, (EMS), today announced that its investors and board of directors have approved to spin-off Zero Shock Seating, LLC (ZSS), a new company that is expected to dramatically improve comfort, safety and overall performance within the automotive, performance racing, trucking, aviation, boating, shipping and defense industries.
ZSS is a startup company with exclusive rights to negotiate ownership of a patented, semi-active suspension system that substantially eliminates shock experienced by passengers of all vehicles by automatically adapting to both the driver's body weight and changing levels of shock and road vibration.
"Several hundred times a second, the system adapts to road conditions and the passenger's body weight to provide for a smooth, comfortable ride despite whatever road or off-road conditions exist," said Tony Cole, CEO of EMS and newly named CEO of ZSS.
The inventions were originally developed and implemented in EMS' Micro-Modular Data Centers, but the new patents issued in April, 2013 enable this disruptive technology to be applied to all passenger seats in the majority of vehicles.
Given this technology provides for the only "low profile" platform suspension available on the market today, ZSS can apply this technology to markets that have been previously unable to take advantage of this dramatic improvement in ride and safety.
Applications and benefits can be applied to the following:
- Automobile and truck seats, greatly increasing passenger comfort and safety
- Off road racing, eliminating the severe conditions and repetitive shock that leads to driver injuries and loss of vehicle control
- Cargo containers – both on road and off shore – reducing risk of damage to products while in transit
- Recoil reduction from gun mounts, protecting military soldiers and allowing them to fire more rapidly and accurately
- Semi-tractor trailers, preventing them from tipping over
ZSS will build the prototypes for both new seat applications as well as retrofit applications. These prototypes will be used to secure licensing revenues by offering field-of-use licenses to current manufacturers with applications in each of the verticals described above.
"Truck drivers, heavy machinery operators, off road racers and many others spend much of their time in harsh and unpleasant vibration environments," said Cole. 'With ZSS technology, ride quality is not only safer for the operator, but also for passengers. In addition, automobile manufacturers will be able to build cars with sports-car handling and a luxury-car ride."

About Zero Shock Seating LLC
Founded in 2013, Zero Shock Seating is developing a new magnetorheological-driven isolation platform using In-motion Engineering and is committed to revolutionizing the ride, comfort and safety associated with transportation. The core intellectual property leverages the use of a system of magnetorheological damper(s) and programmable pneumatic spring(s) in a three inch platform to dramatically reduce the shock normally experienced by the passenger of a vehicle.
Traditional seat suspension systems may employ static, rheostatically selected suspension, which cannot adapt to changing road conditions or occupant's weight. Zero Shock Seating will be the only company with patented technology that provides the same results as semi-adaptive MR suspension systems, but available to many new markets due to the low profile nature of the suspension.
