Pagination or Media Count:
The maximum isometric forces adult male subjects could exert at eight locations of hand-operated aircraft controls were measured at 1, 3 and 5gz. Forces were measured in two vertical and four to eight horizontal directions. Selected anthropometric dimensions were obtained on the subjects and compared with those from the 1967 USAF anthropometric survey of flying personnel. Summary statistics including the mean, standard deviation, coefficient of variation, symmetry, kurtosis, and selected percentiles, are presented for each of the 60 force exertion measures.
