|Publication Date:||1 March 2010|
|ICS Code (Ergonomics):||13.180|
This part of ISO 7250 provides a description of anthropometric measurements which can be used as a basis for comparison of population groups.
The basic list specified in this part of ISO 7250 is intended to serve as a guide for ergonomists who are required to define population groups and apply their knowledge to the geometric design of the places where people work and live.
This list is not intended to serve as a guide for how to take anthropometric measurements, but it gives information to the ergonomist and designer on the anatomical and anthropometrical bases and principles of measurement which are applied in the solution of design tasks.
This part of ISO 7250 is intended to be used in conjunction with national or international regulations or agreements to assure harmony in defining population groups. In its various applications, it is anticipated that the basic list will be supplemented by specific additional measurements.
