Anthropometric Study of U.S. Truck Drivers: Methods and Approach 2002-01-3107

The anthropometry of the truck driver population is largely unknown, the available databases are inappropriate, and anecdotal evidence suggests that the variation in population is significant. The combination of large anthropometric diversity with relative lack of data has made designing truck seats difficult in the past.
To begin to remedy this situation, Sears Seating and Anthrotech combined resources to design a study to address this critical lack of anthropometric data on U.S. truck drivers in order to provide a scientific approach to new seat design.
Data collected through the Anthropometric study is being used to develop a seat that will accommodate the majority of drivers with the adjustability to include the entire population.
