Not all furniture fits everyone. Even adjustable desks may have limitations. It is important to ensure CSU ergonomic design guidelines are met when purchasing furniture from an approved vendor. Ergonomic furniture design guidelines have been developed in order to assist departments ensure the highest quality ergonomic product is being purchased and will fit a majority of users.
Ergonomic design should allow for a proper fit for as many individuals in the workforce as possible from the 95th percentile male to the 5th percentile female. CSU specifications were written to ensure this fact. When alternative designs may be needed, given a user does not “fit”, alternatives may be warranted. In such cases, the ergonomics team should be contacted to ensure what is purchased will properly fit.
