Sky Creations win prestigious contracts through the incorporation of ProBax® Advanced Seating Technology
Sky Creations has won the contract to supply 900 high back Stellar meeting/conference chairs to
the Postillion Hotel in Utrecht Holland. The Postillion Hotel is part of the Dutch owned Postillion
Hotels Group which has five similar facilities throughout Holland. The Stellar chairs will be
delivered in August 2010.
Postillion Hotels Group had seen the chair at first hand in the Novotel in Amsterdam Central, one
of the biggest business conference hotels in Amsterdam with over 650 Stellar chairs in its meeting
and conference rooms. The chairs were chosen for their stylish design coupled with ProBax, the
unique ergonomic seat support technology. The foam-based ProBax® technology improves the
postural position of an individual whilst seated, significantly enhancing comfort by maintaining the
natural curvature of the spine. ProBax® not only relieves muscle fatigue by maintaining proper
support and posture, but clinical trials performed in the U.S. and U.K. have demonstrated
significant health benefits, including increasing the body's blood flow. This can help maintain
concentration levels and reduce fatigue, important in the conference and convention arenas.
"I am delighted that in this difficult market the proven benefits of our technology are giving our
partners a significant and unique competitive advantage, enabling them to win high-value
contracts", said Ian Moore, C.E.O. of NuBax. NuBax Limited owns all intellectual property rights to
the technology and is dedicated to the continued evolution of seating; further promoting the
comfort, medical, safety and cost benefits associated with their ground-breaking technology.
In addition, Sky Creations was also chosen as the furniture provider for the Ricoh Arena (Coventry
City Football Club) to help conduct a major refurbishment. Sky Creations supplied breakout and
soft seating to their lounges and the Stellar high back conference chair complete with tip up tables
for their meeting, conferencing and dining areas.
Daniel Gidney, Chief Executive of The Ricoh Arena said, "We wanted to move away from the
traditional looking conference chairs and the Stellar chair was ideal", proving yet again that style
and ergonomics can be achieved without compromising design.
ProBax® seating technology is already widely available both in the US and in NuBax's home UK
market. Launches of Healthcare and Patients seats took place with leading manufacturers in 2007
where the improved body functions associated with the technology are possibly even more
valuable than comfort related benefits. MTS markets the technology in the North America for
Conference and Convention seating. ProBax® modified seats can also be found in University and
library breakout seating, office chairs and conference venues across the UK.
The patented technology can be incorporated into most forms of seating, with Automotive, Aviation
and Furniture being the Company's primary markets. Five years ago, Lotus became the first car
manufacturer to introduce the NuBax technology, in its road models. 2007 saw involvement with
several high profile racing team launches and the technology is currently being tested by leading
vehicle manufacturers where it has both reduced weight and delivered performance benefits.
Similarly, technology from NuBax is already available in the rarefied atmosphere of the corporate
jet market. Marketed as AeroBax® for aviation applications, the technology is bringing improved
comfort and health benefits to elite travellers in private aircraft and pilots in all plane types. By
offering potential to reduce weight by eliminating the need for bulky lumbar mechanisms the
technology is also gaining interest from commercial carriers.
NuBax continues to expand its licensee base and is currently developing products for heavy
industrial vehicle use, educational seating, auditoriums and the office environment.
