In collaboration with Sascha Wischniewski and his colleagues, Dominik Bonin and Alexander Grötsch, we have made stature, mass, and BMI data for German civilians publicly available. This is an updated sample, based on the first wave of the German Health and Examination Survey for Adults (DEGS1). The data were collected from adults aged 18-67 years from 2008-2011. The data areRead more

The results of the analysis and subsequent design recommendations are compared with the actual design evolution of the iPhone product line. For certain subsystems, this comparison reveals a divergence in Apple’s design decision-making from the evolution recommended by the GVI technique.

In the absence of detailed information on body dimensions for a design population, they can be estimated using a variety of techniques.Read more
Design for human variability produces artifacts, tasks, and environments that are robust to the variability in their users.Read more
Detailed information on the body size and shape of your target user population can improve performance metrics like efficiency, safety, and comfort.Read more

Wearable sensors and computing can improve patient compliance during rehabilitation and recovery.Read more
This paper focuses on anthropometry and proposes three ways in which its consideration is relevant to Design for Sustainability: reducing raw material consumption, increasing usage lifetimes, and ethical human resource considerations.Read more
The Iron Lion Design Challenge II took place in May. In the second year of the Challenge, it grew to 13 students and many faculty and industry collaborators, who collaborated on a variety of design projects, including a universally-designed portable appliance and an improved gripper, among others.Read more
The Iron Lion Design Challenge, a multidisciplinary design competition related to adaptive medical devices, took place on the University Park campus June 23-June 30, 2008.Read more
