THREE DIMENSIONS
Ergonomics

A question of support

Optimizing the relationship between the weight,
shape and size of the body and the material to
create a supportive, high-performing system.

Parameters

Elasticity

The ability of a material to maintain or return to its original shape after being stretched or compressed; perceived as stretchiness.

Durability

The capacity of a material to withstand pressure, wear or damage; perceived as sturdiness, robustness and strength.

Support

The way in which a material bears the weight and pressure applied by all or part of the body; perceived as softness or firmness.

Measurements

Compression Set

The degree by which a material has permanently deformed after a force that has been applied to it over a period of time is removed.

Pressure distribution

The level of pressure observed from point to point within a material; the way in which pressure is spread over an area.

Hysteresis

The energy absorbed by a material when it is being deformed; high hysteresis can represent poor resilience and slower recovery.
