What is Anthropometry?
Anthropometry refers to the measurement of the human person. The purpose of anthropometry in design is to make the location, structure, or any other product convenient for the user.
Anthropometry is an essential tool of physical anthropology, it has been used for identification, for the purposes of understanding human anatomical variation, in paleontology, and in various attempts to correlate physical with racial and psychological traits. The use of anthropometry in architecture is to make the design conform to the human body rather than to optimize it. Human dimensions govern the dimensions of a building.
When anthropometric measurements are considered for design, it help students achieve comfort, reduce Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), and improve students' attentiveness while a professor or instructor teaches them.
