The STICK-MAN Program was written for the Anthropology Branch MRHA of the Human Engineering Division, Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory AMRL. Its function is to provide a means for studying the interrelationships between the mass and center of mass of of the human body segments and the mass and center of mass of their component parts. The program utilizes an IBM 2250 Display Unit to enable the user to enter and modify parametric equations. The results are displayed numerically and also displayed graphically on a stick-man view of the human body. Once the study is completed for a given subject, a hard copy printout of the results may be obtained. This program was written for an IBM System360, Model 40 computer. Both assembler language and Fortran IV were used in coding the programs and Graphic Programming Services for the 2250 GPS was utilized for the graphics software support.
