Abstract
A new application of human back contouring by the projection moire method for the assessment of furniture design ergonomics is presented. The muscle-osseous system is analyzed in three planes and several characteristic points to find 6 basic parameters selected from 48 automatically analyzed ones for the standing and sitting positions. If the furniture dimensions are incorrectly selected with respect to the user height and body proportions the values of selected parameters differ for the two positions. The analysis indicates, with high accuracy, the places of the vertebral column exposed to the risk of postural deformities in the case of incorrectly chosen furniture.
