||In this study, the sitting behaviour of 74 healthy volunteers of both genders was tested on a standard office chair under various realistic working conditions using a specially-developed recording device. The aim of the study was to examine the movements of the seat and backrest surfaces during a working day, to identify the percentage of front, middle and posterior sitting positions, as well as the differences when executing specific tasks and to verify the assumption that one would slide from the chair with a seat inclination of -10░. The experimental device was located in offices, a call centre, a control centre with monitoring and in the area of a seminar event for students. No conclusive evidence or answer to the questions was given by the tests. The front position of the seat is still preferred for all the workstation conditions observed.
