ABSTRACT



This work is a contribution to virtual design of the healthy sleep parameters. This study method can be expanded to virtual models of sitting postures, namely in solving the question of chairs comfort (seat and backrest). Further studies and their scope in the area of healthy laying and healthy sitting (especially in schools and offices) may facilitate development of design-constructional solutions for the corresponding furniture and thus cover wider area of upholstered furniture.

Key words: upholstered furniture; ergonomic; numerical analysis.
