Castellucci Arezes & Viviani 2010 Classroom Furniture Anthropometry

Children spend about five hours per day sitting down while doing their school work. Considering this aswell as the potential inadequate use of school furniture, it is likely that some anatomical–functionalchanges and problems in the learning process may occur. The aim of this study was to compare furnituresizes within three different schools with the anthropometric characteristics of Chilean students in theValparaı´so region, in order to evaluate the potential mismatch between them.

Where is the information and action to fight the obesity epidemic? | Anthropometry and Kinanthropometry | Scoop.it
To listen to the World Health Organisation, you would think that Ireland was going to sink into the sea by the year 2030, under the sheer weight of its growing population of fatties. Allowing for a degree of hyperbole, though, the rich-world epidemic of obesity is real, in the sense that it is upon us already, and far from a laughing matter.

There was a steady rise in the proportion of overweight children between 1994 and 2003, but in the past decade it has remained at about 30%.


The King's College London researchers add obesity rates among 11- to 15-year-olds are still rising, however.
