Decision to remove European Standard for school furniture!

Learn to Move has participated actively in the Swedish Standardization Institute´s School Furniture Work group, and pushed to remove the current European Standard. The International standard  was just dropped (ISO standard) but unfortenutely the Europena standard remains. It  is purely negative and lacked knowledge regarding anatomy and ergonomics. In a study regarding school furniture, it was found that neither  schools nor furniture compainies adheres to the standard available. Knowledge is been lacking and furniture has often been too low and ordered by persons that lack knowledge of sitting ergonomics. Now the work to create  a new standard continues – hopefully a dynamic standard that takes into consideration work position and resting position.

This picture shows the European standard to the left. To the right is an illustration of how children choose to sit when they can change height and inclination of seat and table . Children make good choices when given the opportunity.
