Étude ergonomique des sièges de secrétariat: Définition d'une problématique

Abstract : This work is centred around the definition of problems posed by the ergonomics study of typists chairs. The results showed that secretarial work does not consist of a single task but is in fact made up of a variety of activities. A chair designed for this kind of work should take into consideration the variety of activities and the transition from one activity to another. With this in mind the principal factors to take into account are seat height, position and shape of the back support, the presence or not of arm rests and their structure. It has become evident that the recommandations given in the literature are not in agreement mainly resulting from the lack of anthropométrie studies and the data published being based on theoretical rather than experimental criteria.
