Thesis and an outline on Conceptual Design and Innovation of Child Gas-Lift Chair. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Gas-lift manufacturing corporations have been emphasizing their concentration on the features of their chairs to appease the working, learning, and conference organizing associations and facilities. Separating the market by age has grounded their design concepts on balanced sitting whilst still maintain the relaxed setting mode. However, patented seat designs are inclined to make research gas-lift chair models, manufacturing industries, clients, the government, and industry to analyze the designs, its influential nature, and viewpoint developed from contended and discontented customers. The following dissertation exposits particular projects aimed at developing gas-lift chairs for children, its context, methodologies used in the research, and an analysis of the outcomes obtained (Wentz, 2003, p. 38).
Detailed features of the gas-lift chairs are determined through the critical analysis of the artistic, environmental, economic, and functional roles expected to take (Cabinet Maker, 2011, p. 49). The comfort of the client is the priority set by the designer. In this particular situation, children are inclined to be very unsettled when it comes to the position they take when sitting down. Children generally pursue a position that mainly suits their interest in the chair and whichever orders they are expected to pursue. For instance, the education department of the United States considers the comfort of children in the classroom a major priority. As a result, excellent furniture is very significant because they determine the performance of the students. Project design details enforced into the gas-lift chairs have been based on the armrest, back support, headrest, seat, and knee backs (Cabinet Maker, 2011, p. 49).
Gas-lift chairs for children have been designed through the modification of the elevation and backing of the lumbar region, or lower back (Wentz, 2003, p. 38). .Adults have been found to prefer chairs that offer mid-back and upper-back sustenance too. On the contrary, children do not have mature and long backs as adults do. Therefore, they are inclined to focus on the sitting pan that supports the entire torso. Under such a situation, the design of the gas-lift chair would focus on the lower back region of the chair. The tilt mechanism sustains support as the child moves and lounges. Designers make these chairs with the preference of having the back of the children slightly lounged whilst relaxed in front of a desk. The gas-lift chair also focuses on the advantages of the seat pan. The weight of children should be equally distributed on the pan to provide maximum comfort. Research of gas-lift chairs manufactured particularly for children reveals seat pans that have a circular or waterfall edge at the face of the seat. Such a face or edge hinders the seat from grasping behind the laps and preventing circulation (Wentz, 2003, p. 38). .
