Title Seated Soldier Study: Posture and Body Shape in Vehicle Seats.
Publication Date Jan 2014
Media Count 48p
Personal Author M. P. Reed
Abstract Current and future vehicle programs face major challenges in providing adequate accommodation for soldiers while ensuring performance and safety. Current MIL-STD 1472g lacks detailed information on soldier posture and body shape, including the effects of personal protective equipment (PPE) for seat and vehicle interior layout. Current design guidance is based on outdated anthropometry. Previous studies of seated anthropometry have not included the effects of PPE on posture and body shape. Detailed anthropometric data needed for the design of human surrogates used for blast protection assessments.
