Abstract:

The collation is a volume 1 of a 2-volume critical comparison of measuring techniques and anthropometric data from 48 American and foreign sources. Approximately 2000 dimensions cover the anthropometry from 16 countries. All titles and descriptions of dimensions from foreign references are presented in the original language as well as in English in many instances the collation presents translations into English for the first time of classic anthropometric techniques that serve as the basis of the art. The presentation is such that each entry is complete in itself. All equivalent and nonequivalent dimensions of the same or similar title or description are cited and explicit differences, if any, are quoted. References to other anthropometric dimensions and data permit easy and quick comparisons, selection of appropriate dimensions, as well as precise understanding of measuring techniques. The data and techniques described are of direct use in the design of all types of equipment requiring the human operator in the design and sizing of clothing and will have academic, medical, and other biological applications.
