摘要

Custom fitted seat cushions work to improve posture, alleviate fatigue and prevent bedsores by evenly distributing body mass and relieving single or multiple points of pressure. Existing commercially-available bedding and seating is unsatisfactory to patients and professional alike. Three-dimensional anthropometric measurement technology is employed to establish a database of hip-form profiles. This database includes 400 individuals grouped into five categories based on the shapes and measurements of 3-D hip-forms analogous to women's brassiere cup sizes. Each class is matched within a range of a anthropomtric values such as height, weight, hip-circumference and thigh-diameter. With such human factor engineering considerations, the preliminary 3-D hip-form data-base has created practical distinctions between the five hip-form classes that could help to design patient specipic seating that is both comportable and healthy.
