Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The field of seat pressure distribution has grown more and more important in the last five decades. Compared to the early phases of development, when only a description in principle was the goal, the quantitative differentiation of force induction and furthermore the evaluation of different supporting systems by these methods have gained importance over the years. Recent developments in the ergonomic field assign increasing importance to the seat pressure distribution measurement, because now the effects of the seat design on the human body are not viewed monolinearly, but the interaction of the body and the seat is also taken into consideration in order to assess functional consequences for the person using the seat and to give guidelines for producing adequate products for the human bodysphere.
