Ellipse

Ellipse makes it easy to see the correlation between two different body dimensions and to determine the consequences for related product dimensions.

Ellipse
You can select from a variety of populations and measures. Each with a description and clear availability information.
The interactive scatter plot shows the covariance error ellipse and allows you to draw boxes to quickly determine what percentage of the population fit certain dimensions.

    The most recent version of the DINED-series was based on two sources. The first is the Geron-project 1993-1998 of the TU Delft Ergonomics group (see also the Geron 1998 table), which provides the basic body dimensions. Second source is the Caesar-project from TNO Human Factors Soesterberg, which provides the circumferences.

    The TU Delft Geron project was a national study in which 750 subjects, who lived independently, were assessed. In total about 80 variables, all more or less important for product use, were measured. The sample consisted of four age groups ranging from 50 to over 80 years of age; a group of young people (20 - 30 years) was also studied for the purpose of comparison (see DINED 2004 table). Women and men participated in about equal numbers.
