Tom Gunston has been involved in assessing the shock and vibration isolation performance of seating for land, sea and air transport for over 20 years.
He is currently the Convenor of the international (ISO) working group tasked with the development of a standard test for marine seats and is Chair of the British Standards panel on Whole Body Vibration.
He carried out research into suspension seat performance at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research and then worked for two years at QinetiQ assessing shock and vibration exposure on land, sea and air vehicles.
He now splits his work between the construction and high speed marine sectors. He is currently working for the RNLI and the MOD on shock and vibration exposure and seating performance and has worked for a range of marine craft operators, builders and seating suppliers.
