Correct landing

For unloading of vertebral disks sit down with the maximum shift back, leaning all back on a seat back. Ideal the pose at which the head settles down on one straight line with a backbone is considered.

To reduce tension of muscles at distant trips, it is possible to increase a back inclination some. Thus driving possibility when lying on the highest point of a wheel of a hand are slightly bent in elbows, however, should remain.

Lumbar опора*

The contour of a back can change so that its acting part was entered in a hollow of lumbar department of a backbone, creating a support for it.

Thus, the support of the top department of a basin and a backbone, promoting the correct and free landing is provided.

The pressing the switch in front or behind reaches respectively increase or reduction of camber of a contour of a back.
