TORSO LINKAGE MODELING. A DISCUSSION

Body measurement requirements of human engineering specialists cannot be fully met by the use of traditional anthropometry. The human engineer needs anthropometric data which can be used to describe the spatial location, configuration, and mobility of both external and internal landmarks for prescribed operator tasks and workspaces. In order to accomplish this goal, multidisciplinary studies are needed that will incorporate the fields of anthropometry, biomechanics, statistics, ergonomics and others.
