OHCOW’s Excel-based Anthropometric Calculator brings together a number anthropometric databases* in an attempt to provide the most comprehensive and concise data set of anthropometric dimensions

Anthropometric measurements are a series of quantitative measurements that are used to assist with design options for both specific individuals and general populations, and to assess potential sources of mismatch between specific individuals or populations by comparing equipment heights and distances to a worker or group of workers.
