The use of bed in Korea has increased steadily, however, intensive survey on the general use and consumer's evaluation of their beds have not been performed sufficiently, yet. Thus, the purpose of this study is to investigate the actual use of the consumer and their degree of evaluation for the component of the bed as well as their feeling of discomfort on the various parts of body.

(2) Important physical variable related to the comfortable sensation of the sleeping was the degree of support in maintaining the natural shape of the spine and waist. Durability and the degree of hardness of the mattress were also important physical parameters of bed perceived by consumer. (3) The degree of discomfort on the back and waist during sleep was closely related to the comfort evaluation of the bed.

The purpose of this study is to investigate the fitness according to drafting method of the block patterns for women in Korea. The major findings of this study are as follows: 1. According to comparative analysis of required measurements, two measurements of back length and bust girth are used in Proportional Drafting Method (Munhwa). In case of Compromise Drafting Methods are used across chest, across back, bust length, bust width, full length in front, across shoulder and shoulder length in addition to back length and bust girth. The type of Armstrong as a Short Measure Drafting Method uses 10 measurements for the drafting the bodice. 2. While Esmod block pattern arid Armstrong's block pattern are the lightest in full width and other widths. Rasara block pattern is the most ample. In Lee, Myung-hee's block pattern and Lee, Hyung-sook's block pattern, amounts of drooping are decided
, but drooping amounts of other block patterns are decided corresponding to real measurements. While cap height in Esmod and Armstrong's sleeve patterns are directly measured Armhole length of the block pattern, cap height of other sleeve patterns are used armhole depth and cap height length as well as armhole length. 3. When analyzing to indirect measurements, Esmod block pattern shows the least different between full length of block pattern and that of body form. Munhwa block pattern and Kim, Hyosook's block pattern are mostly same to body form back length. However all of the block patterns are sheller than body form length. In case of Suh, Wansuk's block pattern, across back and across chest are same size, but other block patterns show difference between across back and across chest. Most block patterns' neck width in front and bach bodice are almost same. Front neck width is generally bigger than back neck width in some cases.
Research on the Amount To Be Removed at the Neckline According to the Upper Chest Type
Koo, Mi-Ji ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 10, issue 4, 2001, Pages 391~398
This research is focused on how to divide the upper chest type and to find out the amount to be removed at the neckline according to the different upper chest type and different neckline depth. The result of the research is as followed. 1. In the result of the factor analysis, the upper chest could be explained by six factors such as the shape factor of the upper chest, shoulder curve factor, shoulder sloping factor, space factor from shoulder to waist, upper chest slope factor, and the bust size factor. 2. The shape of the upper chest could be divided by three groups. The first group is characterized as lagging and bent backward shoulder, slight slope of upper chest, and small bust. The second group is comparatively curved at the upper chest and big bust. The third group is rising and bent forward shoulder, slight curved upper chest. 3. The amount to be removed at the different neckline depth and in these three types of upper chest had a difference due to the differences of the upper chest shape containing the shoulder shape.

Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 10, issue 4, 2001, Pages 399~409
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the preference of image for modern application of Korean traditional patterns. A survey was conducted using the random selection among female undergraduate students in Daegu city. The degree of interest and preference in Korean traditional style or something like that measured by 5 scale method. And then they were classified into two groups which were interest/non-interest group, and preference/non-preference group. The image of Korean traditional patterns consisted of semantic differential scales. Frequency, percentage and mean were analyzed, for difference of groups t-test was analyzed. The results were as fellows; 1. For the degree of interest for Korean traditional patterns, it was showed that 53.8% of total respondents took interest and about 40.4% of them had preference for traditional patterns. the correlation coefficient of the degree of interest and preference was 0.782(p<0.01) and showed that the positive correlation was high. 2. Among 20 kinds of Korean traditional patterns, the degree of preference for the patterns of plants and nature was quite high whereas that for the patterns of geometrical things was low relatively. 3. It was evaluated that pattern of nature was fresh, refined and womanly image generally. It was evaluated that pattern of plants was womanly, fresh, weak, light and soft image and that of animals was heavy, splendid, high-class, manly, strong and positive image. It was evaluated that pattern of geometrical things was the most refined image and high-class, rigid and strong. 4. The statistical significance of mean between interest/non-interest group was showed statistically in the patterns of clouds, mountains, lotus, apricot, orchid, dragon, phoenix and bogey. In case of pattern of orchids, the degree of preference was most different between interest/non-interest group. 5. The pattern of plants showed the most different evaluation for images between interest/non-interest group. For refined/old-fashioned polar adjective images, the interest group evaluated the pattern of plants more refined. 6. For pattern of orchids, the difference of degree of preference between preference/non-preference group was most remarkable in Korean traditional patterns. 7. The pattern of geometrical things showed the most different evaluation for images between preference/non-preference group. For warm/cool polar adjective images, the preference group evaluated the pattern of geometrical things cooler.

This study was peformed to assess the nutritional status of female nursing home residents by dietary intake. The subjects were 60 nursing home residents aged over 60 from 3 different nursing homes in Seoul, Cheonan and Chunchon. Dietary intake was assessed by 24-hr recall and nutrient intake was calculated using CAN-Pro and database for vitamin E established by authors. To establish vitamin E database, we analyzed vitamin E concentration using HPLC in several foods consumed frequently by nursing home residents. The results of nutrient intake were as follows; 1) Average daily intakes of energy, protein, phosphorous, iron, vitamin
and niacin were higher than RDA, but calcium, vitamin
and niacin of Chunchon were lower than RDA. 2) Intakes of protein, sodium and niacin of Cheonan residents were significantly higher than those of Seoul. 3) Intakes of phosphorous, potassium, vitamin
and dietary fiber of Cheonan residents were significantly higher than Seoul and Chunchon. 4) Intakes of sodium and cholesterol of Seoul residents were higher than Cheonan and Chunchon. 5) Average daily intake of vitamin E was lower than RDA. Especially vitamin A intake of Cheonan residents was significantly lower than other two cities.
