Abstract

A body positioning system and an integrated system for positioning a user’s body vis-à-vis a work surface is herein described. The body positioning system includes a carriage upon which is mounted a seat assembly. The seat assembly rotates a seat bottom and a seat back between a sitting position and a standing position to position the user. A knee brace is provided on the carriage to retain the user on the seat. Arm rests travel with the seat back and maintain a selected spatial and angular orientation therewith.
