Children's furniture design should emphasize functionality and safety

There are about 200 million children and adolescents in China. With the continuous improvement of housing conditions for urban residents, children's furniture has become one of the hot spots in the furniture market. Nowadays, the only child in many urban families has their own living room. Most parents want to buy low-quality children's furniture such as bedclothes, writing desks and bookcases for their children. Therefore, children's furniture suitable for children of different ages and heights from three to sixteen years old will have a broad market. Furniture designers should further explore the inner world of children, and their design should fully follow the following principles:

Feature

The children's room is the child's independent territory and needs enough space. Therefore, the children's furniture should occupy a small position, and integrate the functions of living, learning and play as much as possible, and have diversity and variability.

1. Dimensions must follow ergonomic principles, with the height of the human body, combined with children's age and body shape, furniture aptitude, is conducive to their healthy growth.

2. The selection of materials should also be combined with ergonomics. For example, children's beds should not be used with soft materials to avoid skeletal deformities, but they should not be used with hard materials, which may cause discomfort and fatigue.

3. Flexible use, multi-functional design or modular design.

4. According to the life characteristics of children at different ages, the design of furniture should be considered to reflect the integrity of the function.

5. Children's furniture design should consider the function of being able to mix and move at will, it is best to adjust according to the height change, reflecting economy.

safety

Children are in a stage of active and curiosity, mostly “small adventurers”. Therefore, when designing, you need to be bothered to eliminate unsafe factors and pay close attention to the following points:

1. Use green materials (substrate, coating and connectors). The Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision recently announced that the phenomenon of excessive formaldehyde in children's bedroom furniture is very serious and is extremely harmful to children. At present, the materials used for children's furniture are relatively rich. Under the premise of ensuring sturdiness and practicality, non-toxic and environmentally-friendly materials should be used as much as possible; UV spraying technology and metal nailing are effective methods recommended by experts to reduce harmful substances to children. .

2. Children's furniture is structurally stable and can be held firmly under constant and multiple shaking.

3. The prominent cartoon shape should have sufficient impact resistance to ensure that the child will not fall off when pushing, the width of the fence is moderate, the protection function should not be too wide, and the limbs should not be narrowed.

4. Do not use large glass and mirror to decorate. Consider using plexiglass or solar panel instead.

5. Large furniture design should be considered to be stable and fixed so as not to cause the child to fall down and cause accidental injury.

6. Children's furniture products should avoid hard, rough and sharp edges, smooth and smooth lines, smooth edges, smooth switches and delicate surface treatment to avoid injury to children.

7. Children may play hide-and-seek in the furniture. The large boxes and toy cabinets that hide the body should have ventilation holes and eliminate the locking device.

Optogenetics is a booming multidisciplinary bioengineering technology. It has the characteristic of high spatial-temporal resolution and cell-type specific. It overcomes the disadvantages of traditional methods of the activity control for the cell and organism, and also provides a revolutionary method for the research of neuroscience. The research fields include fundamental research of neural circuit, study and memory research, habituation research, dyskinesia, sleep disorders, parkinsonism, depressive disorder, anxiety disorder etc., and many classic laboratory animal germ line (drosophila melanogaster, nemathelminth, mice, Marmoset, and machin etc.)
Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system. It is currently an interdisciplinary science that collaborates with other fields such as chemistry, computer science, engineering, linguistics, mathematics, medicine, genetics, and allied disciplines including philosophy, physics, and psychology. It also exerts influence on other fields, such as neuroinduction and neurology. The scope of neuroscience has broadened to include different approaches used to study the molecular, cellular, developmental, structural, functional, evolutionary, computational, and medical aspects of the nervous system.
