Anthropometry

Anthropometry is the branch of the human science that deals with  the physical measurement of the human body, particularly size and shape. Ergonomics is the science of work of the people, who do it and the way it is done; the tools and equipments they use, the places they work in, and the psychological aspects of the working environment. In a simpliï¬Âed way  it can be explained as the adaptation of work to man.. One application of anthropometrical measurement in ergonomics is the design of working space and the development of industrialized products such as furnishing, cars, tools, work stations, chairs etc. With recent advances in technology, the precision and automation of measurement techniques will increase, improving deï¬Ânition of human size, and the mechanics of workspaces, clothing and equipment. A well-developed tool will perform better in a worker’s hand without harming his bodily structures.
