Ergonomics in the Driver’s Seat

by Ryan Cowart, AEP

Ryan Cowart, AEPI just ran across this cool website that provides helpful tips on how to adjust your car’s driver seat before that long commute to work.  Similar to an office workstation, automobiles have Four Points of Contact™: feet to pedals, body to seat, hands to controls, and eyes to the road. Posture Medic breaks these down into an appropriate level of detail with specific angles to adjust for and an easy-to-understand setup guide that all drivers can apply. I think the most important aspect of adjusting your car seat is to make it comfortable for you—the person actually operating the vehicle. Take a look and be sure to drive safe!
