Title: Seated occupant impact-injury minimizing method

Abstract: A shock-load G-force minimizing seat structure and injury-minimizing methodology wherein the seat structure responds principally in non-springy compression, rather than in spring-loading bending, to vertically directed shock loads. The seat structure features an anti-springy frame structure which supports a thin and very lightweight seat cushion support spanner web formed preferably of a non-stretchy material, such as a material made out of elongate carbon-fiber strands.
