This paper presents the ergonomic aspects in designing and prototyping of desks cum chairs used in elementary schools. The procedures adopted for the assessment included: the study of existing school furniture, design analysis and development of prototypes. The design approach proposed a series of adjustable desks and chairs developed in terms of ergonomic concepts. In the development stage, the production cost, ease of management, installation and storage were the important factors undertaken. A questionnaire based subjective comfort evaluation survey was carried out on the developed prototypes and the results showed good response and satisfaction levels up to an overall 94%. The details on the ergonomically designed prototype, its development process and customer satisfaction survey have been elaborated in this paper.
