Airtrak Tyres This pneumatic shaped tyre reduces vibration while combining the ride of a pneumatic and the durability of a solid tyre. Stopping vibration helps in two ways: less damage is caused to the forklift; and, more importantly, the driver experiences a reduction of body fatigue. Exposing the body to vibration (usually through the feet/buttocks when riding in a vehicle), increases the risk of lower back pain and internal organ disruption. The Problem Sitting motionless for long periods of time as well as experiencing vibrations while driving leads to increased back injuries among professional drivers, like truck drivers and forklift operators. Occupations that involve driving tractors, forklifts and heavy construction machinery are frequent in lower back pain sufferers. Lower back pain is the leading major cause of industrial disability in people younger than 45 years of age. The Solution Eurotek Tyres has the answer.
