MineExpo 2016 Green Ultra

Earlier this week, Gelco Products participated in MINExpo, as show so BIG, it only happens every four years.

Operator fatigue and comfort is a big concern in the mining industry, not only because miners work long hours, but SAFETY is a foremost priority. The GSeat ULTRA is an ideal solution for reducing vibration, fatigue and maintaining proper posture, while sitting in the seat of the the largest equipment in the world.

MINExpo is great show and the GSeat ULTRA is a well received solution for keeping Miners safe and productive.

Henry Ford said you can buy a Model T, in any color, as long as it is black.  That is quite a mandate, but it was backed up by a lead in design.Ford Model T, Car seat cushion  Not just product design, but manufacturing design.  Ford is credited with creating previously unrealized economies of scale, by designing the production of his Model T, with assembly lines.  This simple maneuver, enabled Ford to create a car that was available for mass consumption, as long as consumers liked black.

Simple innovations expressed in equally simple designs, continue to improve lives and product engagement.  It is amazing to look around at how our lives are affected by product design intended to create engagement with users.  Then, equally amazing, is to look out over a production plant, at how these products go from drawing board to your hands. 

If you have a minute and cannot find something to binge on Netflix or Hulu, I suggest checking out OBJECTIFIED, by Gary Hustwit.  It is an engaging documentary that looks at product design and those credited with being leaders in it.

Iowa80

Moline, IL – June 26, 2016 – GSeat Ultra rides along with Iowa80

Being from the Quad Cities I grew up driving by the Iowa80 truck stop in Walcott, Iowa, on my way to Hawkeye games. Sometimes, we would stop at the annual Trucker Jamboree in July at the Iowa80 truck stop to see the badass classic trucks.

trucker back support 1When I read about Iowa80 entering a 38 Kenworth in The Great Race, Gelco Products quickly offered up two GSeat Ultras for the driver and navigator to help out a home town icon… To learn more about the Great Race check out www.greatrace.com.  

As for the contribution of the GSeat ULTRA, Driver Dave Meier said, “The GSeat ULTRA made a long cross-country trip much more comfortable than it was in the past.”  Adding,”With the heat and noise from our 38 Kenworth, it was nice to have the additional comfort of the GSeat ULTRA.”

Dave, we were happy to help.  See you next year!  Jason Langston, COO

Phoenix, AZ – June 17, 2016 – Truckers and Heavy Equipment Operators

Even heavy equipment operators need to be conscious of proper posture support to prevent injury. Whether you’re sitting at an office or driving a truck, a GSeat Ultra can help you sit more comfortably by reducing the impact of the environment on your body.

Below is a great video that our President, Jason Langston, shot with Gordy Perrigo, a heavy equipment operator.  Gordy doesn’t drive anywhere without his GSeat Ultra.

Spring is the time to get out and get moving! Get out of your office and take a deep breath of fresh air! Dispel the cobwebs with a small dose of sunshine and vitamin D. Your back will love you for standing and moving instead of sitting. Your immune system will love you for the sunny vitamin D, not to mention that healthy glow a few minutes in the sun gives you. Your boss will love you for your increased productivity gained by a short “back” break.

poor posture example

When you return to your office, think about your office chair and the way you sit for hours during the day.

How is your posture when sitting? Do you sit up straight with your feet flat on the floor? Do you slouch into a head forward position? Your posture must be good to maintain a healthy back and reduce shoulder and neck strain. Your office ergonomics must be proper.

Focus on your posture whenever you walk into your office. Remember to sit with good posture. If you begin to feel fatigued, stand up and stretch for one minute, and remember to breath. In addition to good posture while sitting and occasional stretching, you can revamp your office chair with an ergonomically designed seat cushion such as a GSeat or GSeat Ultra.

Placing a GSeat on your office chair helps you sit with better posture, so you can sit in comfort all day. GSeat-Ultra-White-Chair

When you leave the office, keep good posture in mind with a GSeat to suit your lifestyle. Be sure to sign up for our “Healthy Sitting” news and enjoy a 15% savings on many of our GSeat styles and colors!

Gelco Products uses a visco-elastic gel that disperses pressure at the point of contact. The gel maintains its shape better than foam products and because the gel never “bottoms out” and less material is needed to achieve a high degree of comfort. By incorporating functional design with quality materials, Gelco Products creates comfort-enhancing products that reduce pressure and increase comfort. ×
The slight forward slope helps you sit with good posture and helps to keep your low back in a natural and healthy alignment. This natural alignment helps to avoid back pain and fatigue. ×
The center relieved groove is inspired by the “split rail” bike seat design and is meant to relieve all pressure on soft tissues and the tailbone. ×
The patented, integrated “hassle free” handle makes it easy to take your GSeat anywhere you go. Better Posture, More Comfort…anywhere anytime ×
