Good driving posture involves sitting at a slightly more reclined angle than usual while still maintaining a neutral spine.
- Slide the seat backwards so that there is still a slight bend in your knees when you fully depress the pedals.
- Adjust the base of the seat to bring your hips up to make them more level with your knees.
- Recline the seat to about 20 degrees from vertical.
Good car seat setup requires an open hip angle (1) and an open knee angle (2)
Bad driving posture – the seat is too vertical, causing a closed hip angle (1). The base of the seat is angled back, causing a closed knee angle (2).
