What information does the side and back anthropometrics provide?

Issue:
What information does the side and back anthropometrics provide?

Solution:

Side Anthropometrics:

1. Eye/Floor Height - This measurement is to determine the range of adjustments or the height of the worksurface and the monitor. The optimum viewing angle for the monitor at eye level is 1/3 from the top of the monitor.

2. Lumbar Height - This measurement is to determine the backrest range/front tilt and height adjustment.

3. Elbow/Seat Height - This measurement is to determine the armrest range of height adjustments on the chair.

4. Eye/Seat Height - This measurement is to determine the length of the backrest of the chair.

5. Leg Height - This measurement is to determine the range of height adjustments on the chair. The seat height should range from 16-20 inches.

6. Monitor/Work Surface Height - This measurement is to determine the range of the seatpan height adjustments on the chair.

7. Work Surface/Floor Height - This measurement is to determine if the worksurface should be raised or lowered according to the leg height measurement and the keyboard adjustments. The clearance under the worksurface to the floor should be a minimum of 26 inches if a keyboard is installed. 8. Thigh Length - This measurement is to determine the range of the seatpan depth. The seat depth should have a range from 17-19 inches.

Back Anthropometric:

1. Elbow/Elbow Width - This measurement is to determine the armrest range of width adjustment on the chair.

2. Hip/Hip Width - This measurement is to determine the width of the lower backrest and the seatpan.

3. Low Back Height - This measurement is to determine the range of the height adjustment for the backrest lumbar support.
