Executive Summary An ergonomic chair and computer table for primary school students in Turkey, was designed in the scope of the course project. The importance of ergonomic design was apprehended while searching for the ergonomic design principles. Standards for an ergonomic chair and computer table design were understood and a methodology was developed to determine the best dimensions for the products. Some measurements were taken from a sample population of primary school students to satisfy the necessities of the determined methodology. Technical drawings and 3D designs were made to verify the results and to see if there is a room for improvement. Since, the project takes into Turkish students account, current industry products that are sold in Turkey were analyzed to make comparisons between the developed design and the current market products. The Importance of Ergonomic Design “Ergonomics’ fundamental aim is that all human-made tools, devices, equipment, machines, and environments should advance, directly or indirectly, the safety, well being, and performance of human beings” (course notes). As it is emphasized, the comfort of human beings is essential. ‘Ergonomic design’ plays a significant role in providing this comfort and well being. Designing for children is much more important in many terms. Habit formation starts at early ages and ones they are formed changing those habits would be so difficult. Ergonomic design helps to develope a life long right posture. Importance of ergonomic design arises from health problems. Potential problems can be avoided by simple ergonomic solutions most of the time. Computer generated injuries composes the majority of syndromes in today’s technological working conditions. Some common risks are: “Cumulative Trauma Disorders: An average person working at a keyboard can perform 50,000 to 200,000 keystrokes a day. Small repetitive movements can disturb the delicate

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
