Pagination or Media Count:
As the result of a new anthropometric survey of U. S. Army women carried out in 1977, current data now are available on the body sizes, proportions, and distributions of Army women. New information also has been obtained on Army women for workspace measurements and for static muscle strength measurements. The new anthropometric data indicate that there has been relatively little change in the body dimensions of Army women. However, comparisons of data for men and women clearly show that serious design and sizing problems will be encountered in the development of clothing, equipment and materiel intended for use by both Army men and women.
