The DINED 1D Database makes it easy to compare anthropometric data from several studies available and to automate statistical calculations.
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.
Dined 2003 was a joint project from TU Delft and TNO Human Factors. It focuses on the basic body dimensions (no cicumferences) and aims at giving a reliable estimation of the Dutch population by combining two sources for these dimensions.
The original DINED dataset from 1982 was used for more then 20 years as a standard in furniture industry and was published as appendix from NPR1813 by the NEN.
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.
Results from a literature study in which the world is divided in 20 regions.
This study was done on a large representative sample of children between 2 and 13 years of age in the Netherlands. The measurements were performed at primary schools and health care centers for infants and toddlers.
This data was measured in 1982 in cooperation with Gemeentelijke Dienst Verpleging en Verzorging, the association for elderly care and housing in The Hague. [[Original dataset: http://dined.io.tudelft.nl/files/dutch_elderly_gdvv1984.xls]]
This data gives the grow diagrams of children from 0 to 21 years measured in the Netherlands in 1955, 1965, 1980 and 1997. The first two studies included about 40.000 children.
This dataset is the result of a third year practicum with Delft Industrial Design Engineering students, measurements on students are done in three successive years.
This is research was carried out by The Universidad de Valparaiso. The sample is from 3.046 students, with ages ranging from 6 to 18 years old, from basic and secondary schools in the Valparaiso Region, Chile. This is part of a project regarding School furniture and Anthropometric measures.
