Tues 11th Aug 2009:
We had a great first meeting with Prof Abboud and his team at Dundee University, Institute of Motion Analysis & Research (IMAR); these are the right guys to quantify our raison d’être.
They have tested the performance of a large range of conventional bicycle saddles comparing perceived, actual performance and peak pressures.
We left them a couple of saddles for now and set one up on their advanced test facilities, we all had a go despite the seat clamp having seen better days (soo many saddles on and off and…), an opportunity in itself and interesting to have it explained to us how the MS functions, they got the point very easily!
An eye-opening discussion of product function v perception.
