    Subject: [BIOMCH-L] chair ergonomics and comfort

    Dear subscribers,
    I have a friend who owns a company in Italy that makes
    chairs. He would like to start designing his products
    based on some ergonomic parameters that are supposed
    to make the chair more comfortable or better more
    healthy for the people who sit on it.
    I have been asked to make a small research for him and
    I was wondering if some of you could point me in the
    right direction, since I have never dealt with such
    issues before.
    I would like to know what is the best way to collect
    data on his chair, if there are already existing
    protocols to evaluate the ergonomics of chairs, what
    are the methods mostly used to design ergonomic
    chairs. I had a look on the internet, but all I could
    find is studies related to car seats, which is
    actually not what we are exactly looking for.
    Any suggestion will be strongly appreciated.
    I will post a summary of replies.
