How to Select your Child Office
The proper office and chair play a major role in maintaining the child's health while remembering his lessons. Seats and offices, which allow dynamic seating, are the most suitable for this purpose. Tania Cordes, a member of the German "Back Health" movement, said the office could accompany the child for several years, so it should be adjustable. The height adjustment range should be between 56 cm at the bottom and 82 cm at the top. The child should try the seat himself in the store and test its comfort and suitability.
Michael Weber, of the German Technical Inspectorate, said the office and the seat could become small in just six months, so the child should be checked every six months.
Smooth tilt function
To ensure proper head positioning, the office must be equipped with a smooth slope function of at least 16 degrees, with the objective of preventing the sliding of the objects above it. Because of the importance of computers and laptops even for younger children, the two-part desktop becomes important here so they can draw or write on one side while the computer sits on the other. The baby needs 60 centimeters of reading, writing and counting and at least 80 centimeters to work in front of the screen, Weber said.
Seat and office measurements
Ursula Gaisman, of the German Furniture Industry Association, pointed to the importance of placing the office in a suitable room in the room where natural light is used, indicating that light should come from left to right for the right hands and vice versa.
"If the seat and the desk are too small or the seat is not moving, it could damage the upper body and thus damage the back area in the long run," he said. It is important that the seat height and seat depth be adjustable, and the backrest must be adjustable.
The adjustment settings are appropriate when the child can put the feet flat on the ground while sitting, the top and bottom are 90 degrees, and the board should be slightly lower than the elbow height. The arm and forearm should form a 90-degree angle.
