It is important to maintain good body position while in the machine. Adjust the seat, arm rests, and controls to suit yourself. Some basic machine operator body position guidelines are:
• Keep your shoulders and arms as straight and relaxed as possible.
• Keep your wrists straight whenever possible.
• Avoid leaning forward or to the side in your seat for extended periods of time.
• Sit back in your seat, so that your lower back and thighs are supported. Feet should be flat on the floor without any pressure points on the underside of thighs or calves
