Abstract

Classroom chair is considered as an important element for students to improve comfort and concentration in study environment. An ergonomic chair design and engineering is therefore considered very important for its usability and comfort point of views for the students. An ergonomic chair ensures better comfort and confidence for the students in a classroom environment. This research study is proposed an innovative ergonomic chair design and engineering with the objective to satisfy all the basic needs of the students in the classroom environment. In order to design and engineering this proposed chair, relevant data was collected from the prospective students through face-to-face interview, and both online and off-line questionnaires surveys. The proposed chair was tested and validated and fine-tuned based on the students' feedback after using it exclusively. This research study is concluded with study limitations and future research directions.
