Cornell University Ergonomics Web


This new Ergonomic Seating Evaluation Form file is a worksheet that can help you to systematically gather information on the quality of chairs that you may be assessing. The form has been extended from 15 to 21 items to include items that address some important issues and recent advances in the ergonomic design of seating.

The form also has a new scoring system that calculates a %Ergonomic Design Score (%EDS) that summarizes how well a chair conforms to important ergonomic design principles.

The form is a downloadable '.pdf' file, and this can be viewed and printed in Adobe Acrobat. This is an updated version of the form that has been revised based on user feedback. If you have any comments or suggestions please send them to Professor Alan Hedge.
