Anthropometric measurements are a series of quantitative dimensions of the muscle, bone, and adipose tissue used to assess the composition of the body. These measurements are used to assist with not only design options for specific individuals but also general populations. In addition to design they can also be used to assess potential sources of mismatch between specific individuals or populations by comparing equipment heights and distances to a worker or group of workers.
This tool is a combination of a number of anthropometric databases in an attempt to provide the most comprehensive and concise data set of anthropometric dimensions. The datasets included in this tool include Anthropometric Survey of US Army Personnel (ANSUR I), Anthropometric Survey of US Army Personnel (ANSUR II), DINED Anthropometric Database, and Civilian American and European Surface Anthropometry Resource (CAESAR).
