Human accommodation, has undergone rapid changes in the past few years which are outdistancing current concepts, data and design tools. This paper examines the basis of current problems in the application of these tools to the design of safe and comfortable seats. Examples of the types of new data needed are given and the discussion proposes new paths to solve current problems.
