Because of this issue most drivers experience some level of back pain, and other related issues, while driving. CMT has developed a software solution (three patents pending) for all automotive power 6-way, 8-way, 10-way and 12-way Memory Seats. This technology automatically makes safe, subtle changes in the driver’s seat position. CMT provides a quantum leap to the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and the transportation industry. CMT software provides an innovative solution to meet the customer’s growing demand for comfort driving technology. CMT software is low cost to integrate, requiring no hardware upgrades by the OEM. CMT provides the consumer with a more comfortable driving experience that reduces the negative effects of prolonged sitting and allows them to reach their destination feeling great.

Dr. Paul Phipps states, “With CMT's breakthrough technology all drivers who have automatic memory seats, now can have a much more comfortable driving experience. We are working with the Original Equipment Car Manufacturers to make CMT a reality on as many vehicles as possible.”

Patent Abstract
A vehicle seating system can be used within a variety of vehicles to reduce positional fatigue and other effects of long distance traveling. Such a system includes a typical vehicle seat mountable in a vehicle, at least two powered seat adjustment actuators, and an electrical controller. The actuators are moveable to alter the seating position formed by the seat, thereby reducing fatigue experienced by a vehicle traveler.
