Abstract: Uncomfortable feelings and difficulties in reducing the overactive tendencies of students with special needs appeared as two of the most common problems in inclusive elementary schools. Elaborated, such issues can range from anxiety up to children who constantly interfere with their friends while sitting in the classroom. If not taken seriously, these kind of problems will surely disturb the learning process both for normal pupil and those who need special care in inclusive school. Unfortunately, commonly found study chairs that are used in inclusive school are still based on the design of normal students. Not only that, the design was also made before the advancement of today’s cyber technology. Thus, this study aims to develop a design for study chair that can fit the needs of hyperactive students’ ergonomics based on anthropometry while utilizing the current state of cyber technology. The use of cyber technology became a key on the study because it provides a good alternative in the design process, since it produces fast, precise and accurate design images. In conducting this study, the writer used the methodology of design function / The Quality Function Deployment (QFD) with ergonomic and anthropometric approaches to determine the dimensions of the chair design for hyperactive students. With such approaches, the writer of this study was able to create a hyperactive student chairs that has specific features such as adjustable armrests, flexible, and footrests with a slider system. With such features, the chair will provide convenience and reduce space for the activity of hyperactive students.
