And we also have to accept that sometimes we aren't going to know what happened and why. But that's okay. You know how to look at the data and how to see what is normal and what is not - in terms of YOU.

Perhaps the OP should try supplementing the machine with an ant-supine belt? Nothing to lose except about $100. If that plan is not attractive wear a back pack filled with books or something as an experiment.
