art and obdormition

I was impressed and facinated as I read through the postings of this
group.  As an artist it is something completely new to me.  I am a
graduate student in sculpture and I'm trying to make a chair which will
cause the viewers arms and legs to fall asleep (obdormition).  It is my
understanding that I need to apply pressure to the nerve trunk, but I
don't know where on the arms and legs I should aim (where is the nerve
trunk near the surface?, could it possibly be pushed against a bone?...)
I would very much appreciate any help or suggestions.
