n the late 1980s, a police officer who suffered from back problems, designed and produced rough sketches of a new, innovative vehicle seat that helped relieve back problems. From there, the police officer, in combination with renowned Wisconsin industrial designer Brooks Stevens Design firm, took on the project and finessed the design. The Brooks Stevens Design firm is also known for designs including: Hiawatha Train (1946), Excalibur Sports Car (1964) and the Oscar Mayer Weiner Mobile (1958). Concept Seating designs have also been influenced by the innovative research presented by Alvin R.Tilley and Henry Dreyfuss and Associates in The Measure of Man and Woman. The book remains an important tool for those designing products to accommodate the human form.
