Abstract
Anthropometric variables have always been measured with tapes and calipers and the data gathered have been the source material for designers and patternmakers in the development of NBCW protective equipment. This paper describes the re-assessment of the variables and dimensions under consideration and the construction of a new set of variables, for measuring hands, localized in three-dimensional space, that may be measured by traditional techniques but yet be suited to CAD/CAM applications. A set of fifty dimensions was devised and a datum from which to measure was defined. Data were taken from a small sample of hands and a computerized model constructed. Models may be constructed from fewer dimensions but there will be less variability in the resultant surface.
