Demands on children’s ergonomic workplace
01: Chair and desk always form a unit. Proper sitting is only possible when both elements flexibly and intuitively adjust to growth-related changes in body proportions. This calls for adjustment options that take all dimensions into account – even the seating depth. In addition, the chair has to promote physiologically healthy sitting. It must adjust not only to the user’s body proportions but also to his movement.
02: The desk must be adjustable in two ways: in both height and incline. Only in this way can it match body proportions as well as task-specific postures. Children should be able to change the desk height and desktop angle by themselves. This requires intelligent mechanisms and electric motor solutions. The desktop must be deep enough to accommodate a monitor, or else an extension must be added.
03: To prevent the eyes from tiring too quickly, it is important for the space to have adequate basic lighting. This should be supplemented with mobile, flexible lamps at a given time. Good lighting helps the user concentrate longer and avoid headaches.
04: The overall climate of the toom crucially contributes to healthy learning. The desk should be positioned at the window in such a way that the child isn’t constantly distracted by visual stimuli and looking outside. the room should provide options for relaxation as well as movement.
