Abstract Various studies have been carried out in India to develop a set of data on human body dimensions for use in workstation and equipment design. Key results of a study entitled "A national project on anthropometry: Study on sedentary population" carried out in 2001 are presented in several tables. The article goes on to explain how these anthropometric data should be used in the workstation design process.
