HFES/AES Joint Webinar on Strategies and Challenges in Applying Anthropometric Data in Design
Recorded August 30, 2022. Jointly sponsored by HFES and the Applied Ergonomics Society, this interactive and discussion-based webinar will be centered around common anthropometric challenges faced by both academics/researchers and industry/practitioners, such as:
• Use of biomechanical measurements, their modeling, and their application to real-world scenarios.
• Using anthropometry as the driver of equipment, products, workstations, and work process design.
• Implications when anthropometrics is not considered in design and how one must compensate or adjust after the fact.
• Other related topics, experiences, and concerns raised by webinar attendee
