AIKing 2012 HUMAN ANTHROPOMETRY Albert I. King Wayne State University Tsinghua University April 17, 2013 Beijing, China
AIKing 2012 HUMAN ANTHROPOMETRY The information presented in these slides is taken from a book entitled: Anthropometric Source Book, published in 1978 It was edited by the Staff of Anthropology Research Project conducted by Webb Associates of Yellow Springs, OH The work was done for NASA in preparation for more manned space flights
HUMAN ANTHROPOMETRY The book has three volumes Volume I provides basic information on anthropometry Volume II is a summary of all available human data from the military and civilian populations in the US, Europe and Asia Volume III list 236 references related to the field of anthropometry It contains relatively old and is not the only source book
AIKing 2012 HUMAN ANTHROPOMETRY More recent data are available from Cheng et al (1996) This paper introduces GEBOD, software which can provide human and dummy body dimensional and inertial property data While it contains more recent data taken from US sources, it does not show the reader how to make the measurements if a new population is to be studied * Cheng H, Obergefell L, Rizer A (1996) The development of the GEBOD prgram. Proc. IEEE 15 th Southern BME Conf., pp. 251-254.
AIKing 2012 HUMAN ANTHROPOMETRY Anthropologists have set up a series of measurements that neeed to be made to define the dimensions of a human being For each body segment there are critical dimensions that must be taken with the subject either sitting or standing A file describing these measurements is available to anyone who wants it
AIKing 2012 PRINCIPAL DIMENSIONS 1.Standing height 2.Sitting height 3.Torso breadth 4.Limb breadth (Medial to lateral edge) 5.Torso depth (in mid-sagittal plane) 6. Torso circumference 7. Limb circumference
AIKing 2012 EXAMPLES 23. Acromial Height 32. Acromion to Dactylion length 38. Distance from acromion to radiale
AIKing 2012 EXAMPLES 90. Axilla height 93. Back curvature – circumference of back the left to the right mid-axillary point at chest level 103. Biacromial breadth
AIKing 2012 NUMBER OF MEASUREMENTS There are a total of 973 measurements to be taken from each subject This is to obtain a complete set of anthropological measurements For automotive applications, such detail is not necessary Consult GEBOD to see which measurements are needed
AIKing 2012 COMPLETE LIST OF MEASUREMENTS To download this list of measurements, go to the following link: Anthrolist.bme.wayne.edu A copy of these slides will also be available on this link
