System Anthropometry has laid the foundation for a three-dimensional anthropometry. A unique, dedicated laboratory has been built and is currently used in an investigation of the lumbarpelvicfemur linkage system. Data have been analyzed describing the three-dimensional seated posture of 281 young female subjects. Through the use of a multivariant clustering procedure, two postures were identified slouched and erect. Data have been collected and analyzed on the sacroiliac and hip joint motion in three-dimensional space. Thus, the basis for describing in three-dimensional space a fixed body posture and for obtaining data on joint mobility the anatomical site at which a change of posture is made has been established.
