Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: The aim of this thesis is to demonstrate how these chairs can be integrated into patient’s rooms, considering that these objects should be used only occasionally.
After developing a system of taking an inventory and after analyzing all kinds of damages, measures of conservation and restoration are discussed, followed by the presentation of suitable preventive steps which maintain the regained stability of these chairs. The qualities of the rattan web, which is so characteristic of these chairs, are carefully analyzed especially considering the use of these objects as a basic of practical measures that may be needed.
