SHOXS had an interesting array of shock absorbing seats at SOFIC 2014. There is a considerable amount of sophistication that goes into these seats, for example instrument consoles, which are integral to the seat and can be manufactured to fit any instrument cluster. SHOXS seats use a semi-active suspension system, which is a computer based approach that adjusts suspension parameters for varying conditions. Occupant weight is also considered in the operation of the seat resulting in a broader dampening or shock absorption across a wide array of conditions.
