This study developed a new methodology for evaluating volatile organic compound (VOC) and FR exposures to users of upholstered furniture by simulating use of a chair in a controlled exposure chamber and assessing the health significance of measured chemical exposure.

Children are most susceptible to FR exposure via dermal and ingestion exposure due to their frequent hand to mouth contact.
