Based on ergonomics, this paper analyzes the structure of the rowing machine and calculates the size range of each part of the rowing machine relative to the human limb structure. Then the position of the saddle, ankle, and wrist is established by the kinematic analysis of mechanism. Then analytical analysis is conducted to determine the optimal length of each component.
