We talk a lot about passenger comfort on this blog, but we haven’t yet looked at what the poor sods up front are dealing with. And when I say up front, I don’t mean the privileged folks in premium class. I’m talking about the pilots.
Graduate student Nicoline van der Vaart, in a fascinating report about redesigning the cockpit seat, notes that pilots (in this case, KLM pilots) suffer with a lot of back pain due to uncomfortable seats, and that this leads to a high rate of absenteeism.
What does van der Vaart recommend? Check out her presentation below. Note slide 36 (shown above), where the highly-interactive Nintendo Wii-fit plays a role.
