Another aseismatic technology applied to buildings which has recently become popular, is the seismic isolation system. This system is usually applied to the building foundation by inserting rubber bearings between the foundation and the building bottom, which isolates the building superstructure from foundation sway during earthquakes. This technology has the following advantages;

1) Building sway is absorbed by 30~40%
2) Suitable for high-rise condominium and hospital bulding etc.
3) No maintenance is required.
