|All measurements are
read off the scales in metric units (or imperial if requested).
In order to further speed the throughput of
subjects and to ease the burden of the operator, Auto-Masters offers
a computerised version of the Anthropometry Rig.
This is accomplished by the fitting of
position transducers to all 6 axes which are connected to a data acquisition
unit and PC system. On each axis there is an 'Enter'
push-button which causes the computer to store the measurement for
The subject is positioned in the rig, each
measurement slide moved to the desired position and the 'enter' push
button de-pressed. If any measurement falls outside previously
defined maximum and minimum limits an audible warning is
sounded. When all the measurements have been taken the
computer automatically displays the results on a colour monitor and
prints them out on a dot matrix printer. This data is then
stored on a database for further analysis.
As a further option Auto-Masters offer a fully
integrated weight measurement system into the base of the rig.
This unit is then connected to the computer and Height/Weight tables
can be incorporated into the software if required.
