AFTER YOU HAVE ASSEMBLED THE PROCLINER. There are only three easy adjustments to make to the Procliner that will ensure the best fit for each user’s unique physiology. Here are some recommendations:
- First, fully inflate the arm support roller with the included, electric air pump. With the roller fully inflated, you always can release some air to gain a little more room for your arms.
When the arm support is inflated properly, it will give arm support and position the user’s hands ergonomically on the computer, tablet, smart phone, book, or writing and drawing or whatever the user has on the work surface.
- Second, now we will choose the proper setting for the work surface. ***Until you become more experienced with adjusting the work surface height setting, it may be beneficial to have another person to assist in adjusting the height of the work surface.*** The goal here is to just rest the elbows or forearms on the arm support. The point of contact with the arm support should happen effortlessly when you hang you arms down. Remember, you can always release some air from the arm support to make the “fit” more comfortable.
The work surface of the Procliner can be adjusted vertically via holes with inserted pins on the front legs. The work surface can be set at a height that is “just right” for each user.
This work surface setting is too low. My elbows do not reach the arm support.
This work surface setting is too high. My arms cannot hang comfortably to reach the arm support with my elbows. My elbows are jammed up toward my shoulders. I would be uncomfortable working at this work surface setting.
This work surface setting is just about perfect. I will let a little air out of the arm support and my elbows will fall perfectly onto the arm support and I will be able to comfortably work with my arms supported.
- Finally we will set up the EZ View Headrest. The EZ View Headrest consists of a headrest and three (3) cushions.
The user’s head is supported by the EZ View Headrest. There are three cushions to maximize view of the work surface. The three cushions can be arranged to allow the user to wear glasses and to improve head support and comfort. The EZ View Headrest itself can be adjusted for height and angle.
- Let’s get familiar with the headrest. Insert the metal dowels of the headrest into the front of the frame.
- Flip up (unlock) the headrest “Locking” switch to the Unlocked position.
- In the Unlocked position, you can adjust the angle of the headrest.
- In the Unlocked position you can also adjust the height.
- Return the Locking switch to the “Locked” position and it will hold the angle and height settings that you have chosen.
- Arrange the three (3) cushions for comfort and maximum viewing of the work surface.
A couple of hints: For narrower faces the two (2) cheek cushions can be brought closer together. For rounder faces the two (2) cheek cushions can be spread further apart. If you wear glasses leave space between the forehead cushion and the cheek cushions. Now you are ready to use the Procliner. Remember to place the ankle support cushion/roller under your ankle area.
You can try different combinations of arm rest, work surface height and EZ View Headrest settings to see which gives you the most comfort. Once you set the arm support roller, work surface height, and EZ View Headrest to maximize your comfort, the Procliner will be ready for you to use over and over again without any adjustments. The Procliner will totally support your body in the horizontal position with an ergonomic bend in the knees.
