Well, I'm not sure.. We've had quite a lot of that kind of info for some of our uni courses, but I think most of those were taken from military studies taken in the '60's.. therefor being outdated. I don't have my books here this week though, so I can't really check up on that now.

I have previously looked for stuff online and found very little. I keep a copy of key pages of 'measure of man' by henry dreyfus for certain chair projects. the book is quite old but the info doesn't get outdated.

I think Herman Miller do a bit on chair ergonomics and Henry Dreyfuss is the best for actual information though.

Cheers Aphasia!

 

I had already found that website!!! Thanks though! By the way, if anyone cares I hired out from the library "the measure of man and woman" It is a very good book on this sort of thing. Sweet :)

Try your library and see if they have any of the books by Henry Dreyfuss. I know we had a set of sheets that you could spin to whatever height and get accurate measurements from just about any pose or position.

So, a while ago, a link to Human Scales was posted. Does anyone have any more links or resources online regarding ergonomics, human factors, anthropometrics, and so on?

 

Just add the links to this thread, please. Thanks.
