The railway vehicles have adopted the long type of seat layout, parallel to the rail, in order to increase the efficient and flexible transit capability. The back of the conventional seat has previously been low and has been unable to hold passengers stable against pitching and rolling when the train accelerated, decelerated and ran on a curved line. Passengers had been tensing themselves to avoid contact other passengers. The “G-Fit” is a new semi high-back and separated bucket seat designed for holding the body firmly even when used in the long type of seat.
