Design & Research of People-Oriented Office Chair


Article Preview

Measurement method and model method are adapted to analyze harmonious relations between people in the sedentary state and office chairs in various parts by starting from human design perspective of the product and using ergonomics knowledge. The research aims to settle down the technical problems which related to design fitness by correctly applying the ergonomics theory. During design process should study and summarize the user-friendly design elements of health office chairs, methods and performance evaluation as well.
