Chair Design Study
We are studying the impact of chair design on sitting behavior and usability during computer-based tasks over a prolonged bout of sitting. Participants perform word processing, web browsing and PC gaming while sitting in two different chairs for three hours each. We measure pressure distribution and sitting behavior with Tekscan pressure mats and XSens IMUs, and gather performance data for PC tasks. Subjective data about discomfort, usability and fatigue are collected with surveys.
