||Structural anthropometric measurements for males and females were determined for wheelchair-mobile adults. A photogrammetry methodology was used to obtain the measurements. The various subject demographics including age, level or type of dysfunction as well as the specified anthropometric dimensions of the wheelchair-mobile subjects were identified. The data are useful for the design of industrial workstations for wheelchair-mobile adults. Present workstation design principles based on seated able-bodied anthropometric measurements would not be suitable for this population.
