to the reference chair showed significant results for the median values and 95th
percentiles. The lateral seat pan inclination angles showed nearly no lateral
dynamics. The results of the study emphasize that many aspects of workplace
design, e. g. variability of tasks and work organisational factors, should be
considered to avoid physical inactivity at VDU workplaces and therefore prevent

Secondly, the experiment with the student demonstrated that they were not familiar
to some design methods and showed great easiness in appropriating the use of
Internet as a basis for applying XDM.
It is noticeable among students an important familiarity
That's why we propose a cyber culture approach as a basis for applying sharper and
globally intertwined design methods.
XDM - EXTENSIBLE DESIGN METHODSProcess
Because of the conception process perspective of XDM, it may be placed closer to
that. Comprehending strategy has as well low values of creative tension, but both
current and target values are high.
Here we can interpret the results so that they already have committed to their
organization well. The current state of achievement orient
The cyber culture emerges from the social arrangements brought about by the
communities of the cyberspace (Lemos, 2006). These communities expand and
spread the use of the Internet, building up a new structure of worldwi
equipment and digital information systems using XDM.
At the present state of our research, two major points stand out. Firstly, the
cyber cultural approach gives a great differential to XDM in relation to other design
processes. Secondly, testing XDM with
In the study of Wittig no significant differences between alternative seat
concepts and a conventional office chair were found concerning the lumbar spine
