- The first two authors of the paper are from the Rehabilitation Engineering and Applied Research (REAR) Lab. We are not kidding, this is a real lab at Georgia Tech. Lab members normally study things like how to prevent ulcers from extensive wheelchair use and how to design better wheelchairs, all admirable goals.
- Another author, John Winder of the University of Ulster in the U.K., specializes in medical imaging. His other publications include "The establishment of a 3D breast photography service in medical illustration" and "'Virtual unwrapping' of a mummified hand."
- Scientists have long studied how sitting affects the buttocks. Such research goes into reducing ulcers in paraplegics and into designing better chairs.
- If you perform a Google Scholar search for "buttocks," you might find this patent, which seems like it could really make an impression with the middle school set.
