Constructing Three-Dimensional Models of Individuals and their Wheeled Mobility Devices from Landmark Data 2007-01-2494

An anthropometric data collection effort has yielded electromechanical data of three-dimensional landmark coordinates for approximately 300 wheeled mobility device users and their wheelchairs. The development and modeling of static digital models from individual landmark coordinate datasets is described. These models provide a faithful representation of the static postural and spatial characteristics of the individual-mobility device (IMD) system. This paper highlights a few key issues in the development of the static digital models for the wheeled mobility device user group.
