Stubben Biomex Saddles
Promotes Good Riding Posture and Protects Your Most Sensitive Areas
Stübben has partnered with Biomex Technology Center, the leading hospital for orthopedics and sports medicine in Switzerland, to create an innovative seat design that greatly reduces a rider's back pain. Introducing the Stübben Biomex... it will revolutionize your idea of a comfortable saddle.
Biomex is available on all Stübben saddles except for Youth and Icelandic models. The addition of a Biomex seat adds approximately $250 to the saddle price.
Many riders (studies say over half) suffer from back pain, especially after they ride. When riding on a horse, the force exerted on the spine flows mainly through the seat bones. Pressure on these seat bones and the extremely sensitive soft tissues around them can cause pain. The Stübben Biomex cushions the seat bones with two kidney-shaped pads, which absorb impact and relieve spinal stress. In addition, the depression between the kidney-shaped pads also plays a crucial role, as it substantially lessens any possible pressure on the soft tissues surrounding the seat bones. In scientific comparisons with conventional saddles, seat pressure measurements at various gaits show that the Stübben Biomex provides much greater relief in the seat bone area and the surrounding soft tissues.
Peak pressure on the seat (Ischial) bones was reduced in all gaits (red areas). The black ellipses mark the position of the soft tissues between the seat bones. The pressure on these sensitive soft tissues was also reduced in all gaits.
