Abstract The current DIN standard 33402, part 2, is based on anthropometric measurements that are no longer valid. This report presents the results of anthropometric measurements for the 41-55 year age group, which complement those of the 18-40 year age group collected earlier, in order to allow an updating of the standard. The results include more than 69 measures (as against 57 in the current version of the standard) which are broken down by age group and sex.
