Editorial Note: Definitions in this section are treated differently from those in the other sections, with a diagrammatic instead of strictly alphabetical listing. Anthropometry terms can be found alphabetically in the overall index. When a term is indexed as being in the Anthropometry section, the reader should refer to at least one – if not all – of the three listings in this chapter: Dimensional Terminology, Plate List, and Cross Reference List. The reader should also refer to the Glossary.
FUNCTIONAL ARM REACH CONTOURS. Statistical envelopes which describe functional arm reach at various lateral angles of certain percentages of a representative subject population for restrained and unrestrained conditions. Specific derivative of this model is control reach contours in which reach to specific control locations by a representative population of users is determined.
FUNCTIONAL LEG REACH CONTOURS. Statistical envelops which describe functional leg reach at various pedal heights of certain percentages of a representative subject population.
EYE CONTOURS. Statistical envelopes (elliptical in shape) which describe where eyes of certain percentages of representative user population are located in workspace environment. Model can be developed with or without head movement.
HEAD CONTOURS. Statistical envelopes which describe location below which certain percentages of representative user population are located in workspace environment. This definition for head contour can be generalized to other body landmarks (e.g. knees, elbows, shoulders, etc.).
SLEEP ENVELOPE. Statistical contours which describe height, breadth and length dimensions within which certain percentages of a representative user population can assume specific sleep postures (e.g., prone or fetal).
