Research and Development (NIOSH Anthropometric Portal)

Anthropometric valuation is very important to ensure human-centred-design. Human characteristic varied based on gender, age, and nationality.

The earliest measurement method was time-consuming, and the modern method is too expensive with portability issue. In addition, the gathered anthropometric data required a proper data management strategy to avoid any potential error during data analysis.

Therefore, NIOSH managed to come out with a customised anthropometric grid and web-based online portal that will become an online hub to ergonomics enthusiasts, researchers, and authorities related to anthropometric in Malaysia.

In our portal, https://www.anthropometric.niosh.com.my/ , NIOSH researcher managed to collect more than 5000 respondents which can be considered the largest anthropometric study in Malaysia. Another feature of the portal is the Workspace Tool where the user may the tool to design the workstation by using the nearest height in centimetre. Please download the short manual HERE.
