June 11, 2012 - PRLog -- Blackstone Automation, LLC is pleased to announce that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued U.S. Patent No. 8,192,332 covering Blackstone's Shox-Box rowing machine suspension design.  The patent centers on energy absorbing suspension equipment for a rowing machine which enhances conventional ergs by simulating the on-water motions of a boat through the additions of responsive and compliant roll, pitch, and yaw motions throughout the entire rowing stroke.  

Some of the benefits and advantages of adding the Shox-Box suspension to the rowing machine are: (1.) A significant reduction in axial compression of the lower back, thereby reducing back pain and trauma at the finish. (2.) A significant reduction in shear and tensile stresses on the knees, shoulders, and neck, thereby reducing pain in these key areas at the catch. (3.) A more realistic on-water feel to an Erg at the finish and/or the catch positions. (4.) And in addition to building fitness, the increased on-water feel enhances the Erg experience by causing the rower to focus on improving rowing technique.

The Shox-Box products will be demonstrated at the USRowing Club National Championships (Camden, NJ) July 11-15 and the USRowing Masters Nationals (Worcester, MA) August 9-12.

For a limited time, Blackstone Automation is offering FREE shipping on any Shox-Box puchase over $50.  For more details, please visit http://www.shoxbox.biz
