  ackground and aims : The workstation design and providing more convenience and high productivity is one of the main objectives of ergonomics. Work stations should be designed in such a way that fit with the physical and mental demands of the users. One way to achieve this goal is to measure the human dimensions and anthropometric parameters in which different segments of the body can be measured.

  Methods : In this study seventy students from 21 to 30 years (35 male, 35 female) were selected as samples from the School of Public Health that cooperated in anthropometric measurements. Based on the valid articles a list of 15 anthropometric parameters related to research was obtained and each of parameters was measured using equipment such as static anthropometric.

  Results : Based on the results of the measured dimensions, all of which were normally distributed, considering the ergonomic analysis available four types chairs in classrooms, it was determined that only one chair type, 40% is match with students' anthropometric dimensions.

  Conclusion : The results of this study, led to the acquisition of properties for design and selection of appropriate training chairs based on principles of ergonomic.
