Amazing Anthropometrics Vs Exceptional Ergonomics, How to design costume to win Olympics

MIFT benchmark different sports and female athlete body movements

The basic objective of MIFT research is to improve existing sports-wear sizing systems of Indian Female. The study took place in Mysore on 900 young females of different sports background of age between 18 to 30 Years. Body movement measuring procedures were used that was specially modified for body type and that complied with research boundary line. Using front/back and left/right hands and legs movement, both right and left body halves of 900 females aged 18–30 years were measured in order to register their different body movement and classify them into different groups. Analysis of the measurements related to the movement documented the asymmetry arising from the different types and degrees of sports activities that helped in creating a three-dimensional moving model, according to the amplitude limitations. As a result of this taxonomy, different size charts were created and scientifically calculated to correspond to different sports female groups.

Anthropometry refers to the measurement of the human individual

Ergonomics is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.

Anthropometry refers to the measurement of the human individual. An early tool of physical anthropology, it has been used for identification, for the purposes of understanding human physical variation, in paleoanthropology and in various attempts to correlate physical with racial and psychological traits.

Ergonomics is the practice of designing products, systems, or processes to take proper account of the interaction between them and the people who use them.

Above ergonomics study suggest Backpack design for females Via

How to design a global product which has relation with human Height, Wight and other aspects of human body. For example sports-wear, endurance/validation/fitting of shoes, Jeans or clothing for Female if Average Height is so different
Indonasia – 4 feet 8 inches
Netherlands – 5 feet 8 inches

For example Anthropometric data (measurements) are used to determine the shape of handle and distance to be held from head. Designed for average size hand. The length of lead is determined from anthropometric data (length of average arms and average height of users). The hair dryer is now ergonomically designed.

Anthropometry can suggest perfect size  for above shoes, ergonomics can suggest optimal design for user comfort
