That is an interesting design- looks like they mounted a pair of linear actuators on the floor for the fore-aft motion. There must be some type of interlock-catch to secure the seat when driving, as those actuators are more for moving things, not securing against abrupt forces.

there are two screw type jacks that work the up-down part of the thing(by far the most robust part of the device (will pick up 700 or so pounds!)) the raise and lower part remind me of a miniature scissor lift, the fore-aft part is a single screw jack .. the rotate part appears to be a modified electric window motor.
the good thing about screw type jacks is when they stop,.. you are more likely to rip it out of its mount than move the jack. very solid feel to it,.. the bus will not go into gear without it being in the drive position it also added about 4" of rearward seat travel in the drive position if needed (will let you move seat up to 4" rearward while driving)
