Human factors research impacts everything from the height of kitchen counters to the placement of automobile pedals to a book's type size. And in this updated and expanded version of the original landmark work, you'll find the research information necessary to create designs that better accommodate human need. Featuring more than 200 anthropometric drawings, this handbook is filled with all of the essential measurements of the human body and its relationship to the designed environment. You'll also discover guidelines for designing for children and the elderly, for the digital workplace, and for ADA compliance. Measurements are in both English and metric units. HENRY DREYFUSS ASSOCIATES, a leading New York design firm, has been a major developer of anthropometric data for more than seventy years, gathering and publishing all the essential measurements of the human body and its relationship to the designed environment.

ALVIN R. TILLEY (1914 93), the firm's specialist in human engineering for forty years, was recognized as one of the world's foremost authorities on human factors. The compiler of the data presented in this volume, Tilley was coauthor of Humanscale and a major contributor to this book's predecessor, The Measure of Man.
