Jaguar showed optimal position for driving a carMarch 20, 2019
The British automaker has published a video that shows how to … get behind the wheel.
Jaguar released a useful video on his YouTube channel, which explained in detail the optimal position of the driver in the car. This position is necessary not only for correct posture and ergonomics, but also optimizes safety and control over the traffic situation. Even if you are now very comfortable in the car, the video is worth watching.
Dr. Steve Aili, Jaguar Chief Medical Officer, told the video about how to position yourself for comfortable and safe driving.
The first piece of advice, although admittedly rather basic, surprised us all the same. Remove items from the pockets, as this will affect the position of the driver. This is not a big problem, as most modern cars are equipped with many drawers and compartments for storing things that you carry every day.
Next, it is important to make sure that your back is straight, perpendicular to the chassis of the car, and the entire back is touching the seat. In addition, the top of the headrest and the crown of the head should be straight with respect to each other. Your knees and elbows should be slightly bent to control the pedals and the steering wheel. When you turn the steering wheel, your shoulders should still touch the seat back.
On the assurances of Dr. Aytli, following these recommendations, you can dramatically change your control, comfort and confidence behind the wheel.
