Anthropometry is one part of that support Ergonomics, especially the design of an apparatus based on the principles of Ergonomics. Ergonomics is the science, technology and art to combine tools, work methods and environment on the ability, skill and human limits in order to obtain working conditions and healthy environment, safe, comfortable and efficient in order to achieve optimal productivity. This study aimed to the relationship between the level of ergonomic chairs with a concentration level of student learning at the X junior high school in Banjarbaru. Survey research methods, by cross sectional were analyzed descriptively and analytically. The population of all students in the seventh grade in X junior high school 190 were students. Sample of 82 students randomly selected using systematic random sampling technique. Consists of class VII as much as 5 classes. Each class of 16 students taken obtained from the calculation 82 divided by 5 classes. The average number of students for each class were 38 students. For the sample interval was 2, obtained from the calculation of 38 students divided by 16 students. Figures initial sample was first class attendance VIIa, and subsequent sample numbers plus the numbers were multiples of the free 2. Independent variable was ergonomics level seats. The dependent variable was the level of concentration of the student's learning. Tools and Materials Research Termohygrometer, Lux Meter, Sound Level Meter, Metlin, Anthropometer sets, triangular ruler, Bathroom scale, chair ottoman with a size of 40 X40 X40 cm for men, and 35 x35 x35 cm for women, stationery, Questionnaire, Form anthropometric data. Results that 56% seats or 6:29 that students used an ergonomic chair. Students who had a good concentration of as many as 84 students or 51.85%, and students who had poor concentration 78 students or 48.15%. Chi Square test that there was a significant relationship between the level of ergonomic chairs with a concentration level of student learning at X junior high school Banjarbaru. Students who use ergonomic chairs, in concentrations higher than students using unergonomics seat. Suggestions doing research in the field of ergonomics by using different variables such as students level of fatigue, subjective complaints or comfortable.
