We study the modelling of the subjective sensation of discomfort for subjectsseated during a long time, in terms of local discomforts. The methodology usesfuzzy measures and integrals in a multicriteria decision making process,which enables the modelling of complex interaction between variables. Resultsof the experiment are detailed, giving models with respect to different kindsof discomfort, and to different macro-zones of the body.
