* ROC means Residual Operator Contour. This is the natural curve of a person’s body when they are standing or sitting down. Because everyone’s bodies differ slightly, ROC can vary by a little bit. Some people will always have a slightly flatter ROC curve than others, and this affects how quickly they can roll over.
You can choose a control that has ROC curves that are fairly flat, or you can have one that is very, very sloping. Someone who works with the latter type of control will find it more difficult to roll over, because he or she will need to get up a bit more in order to be able to slide over. People who work with the former control, on the other hand, may find that they can roll over at a rate much faster than their ROC curve.
Since ROC curves can change by a person, it is difficult to say which control will be the best for you. You should consider yourself a decent athlete, but that does not mean that you can slide over like a “slalom skier”. It takes some physical ability, but you may find that you have more success using a control that is more sloping.
Another factor that will affect which control you use is the thickness of the mat you are working on. If you are going to slide or roll over a large amount of material, then you will probably need a control that is a little bit steeper, so that you can keep your legs from getting tired.
It is a bad idea to use a control that is too steep. It will feel awkward, and you could injure yourself if you try to work with too much friction between the floor and your feet.
* Fast ROC means the natural curvature of your body is not nearly as steep as ROC. To apply this control, you will want to tilt your body a little bit from the typical ROC curve. This will give you greater control.
The slope of this control is much steeper than you might think. Most people don’t use this control for matlab work, but if you do, then you should do so in a very professional manner. A steeper control is uncomfortable and will cause fatigue to set in.
When using a matlab control for matlab, you will probably have some variation in how you sit and stand. Make sure that you use a control that is appropriate for the equipment you are using. You don’t want to be moving around so much that you break the arm or back of your matlab workstation.
A control that is too flat will make you feel cramped and uncomfortable, and a control that is too steep will make you feel like you are in a really tight place. Use the ROC calculator to figure out what kind of control will be comfortable for you. If you are a natural swinger, you may find that using a steeper control may be just the thing for you.
Remember that the higher the ROC, the steeper your control. A steeper control makes it easier to slide, roll, or even climb over a lot of material. Remember that the matlab math works out differently than in many other programs, so use it as a guide.
Using a control that is neither steep nor shallow may be a better choice for you. You can figure out what kind of control will give you a comfortable feel and then get comfortable using it.
