Title Anthropometry for a mix of different populations
Bibliographic information June 1992, Vol.23, No.3, p.191-196. 14 ref.
Abstract Anthropometric data available in the literature relate to specific nationalities, while in many countries a mixture of individuals may live in a particular community. In this study, 19 body dimensions of 408 males affiliated with a university in Saudi Arabia and from a wide range of racial backgrounds were measured. The body dimensions are reported and compared with other studies. The concept of designing for the user population is emphasised.
