Abstract
Accurate capture of equipped anthropometry is critical to ensure that the analysis and design of military platforms and workspaces account for the additional space required for clothing and PPE equipment. To examine the effect of personal protective equipment (PPE) on spatial claim, methods were developed to model the effects of body armor and PPE relative to body size and shape. The new methods describe contour shape profiles that characterize meaningful size and shape variation of the torso with the addition of clothing and PPE ensembles. A pilot study was conducted with 15 military men.
