Abstract

This paper presents a literature review of anthropometric data collection to address
occupational ergonomics issues. One of the uses of anthropometry is to assess the negative effects associated with working postures. Using new techniques, such as 3D body scanners, it is possible to have very reliable data to use in the enhancement of workstation design or other ergonomic interventions, in order to prevent work-related musculoskeletal disorders.
