Abstract
Two anthropometric survey devices are described which enable the operators to map essential facial features in approximately 1-1/2 to 2 min, and to obtain an image accurate within 1/32" or 1/2 degrees. A portable pantograph draws contours of the chin, forehead, or other surfaces. The orientation of these curves with respect to each other and to some 8 other points and angles of fundamental importance for respirator design, is achieved by a second instrument which is consistently positioned on the face with reference to the chin, nasion, and ear holes. These two devices made possible, in a remarkably short time, the production of a head form truly representative of the mean of some 950 Canadian Army personnel.
