Demystifying the tech behind CMG’s Healthy Seating Technology

 Mercedes-Benz B-Class, featuring CMG’s Healthy Seating Technology™

CMG’s proprietary Healthy Seating Technology™ is an industry first, so it might not be clear to everyone why our solution is scientifically and intuitively “good for you.” It goes beyond its low integration barrier of entry. Through its small, subtle motions, the technology is a powerful, proactive solution to back fatigue, discomfort, and other negative impacts of prolonged sitting.


Let’s talk a little bit more about the seat motions. CMG works with industry customers to help them develop an algorithm to best meet their customer’s needs.  The areas of focus are seat motions (seat back, cushion tilt, lumbar support, bolster, massage, etc.) and other features of the seat (heating, cooling). Customers may make various timing and motion speed choices to create an algorithm that is more comforting or invigorating. The technology is also smart; not only does the program start over automatically upon completion, it also pauses while the driver is braking.


University Tested, Scientifically Proven Benefits

Improved alertness and responsiveness

Reduced lower back muscle fatigue

Minimal effect on life of seat

The benefits of Healthy Seating Technology™ are unique, significant and scientifically proven.

For more than a decade, we have been partnering with research universities to ensure that the proprietary technology works. To date, we have worked with Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Logan University, and Ball State University.

Based on the tests that have been conducted, CMG’s Healthy Seating Technology™:

  • Reduces occupant discomfort
  • Increases driver alertness
  • Pre-empts and reduces tissue fatigue
  • Reduces mental fatigue
  • Relieves pressure points
  • Improves circulation to the lower extremities
