Anthropometric considerations for farm tools/machinery design for agricultural farm workers of Assam
Langthasa S, Bhattacharyya N and Kalita M
Anthropometric data of agricultural farm worker is very essential for appropriate and efficient designing of farm tools and machinery. The overall working efficiency of human-machine environment and resultant discomfort has severe impact while using farm tools and machinery in field. In designing the tools for the comfort of the user, anthropometric data is required. Therefore, this study reveals the anthropometric data of the agricultural farm workers of Assam, which will help to develop/modify the improved tools and machinery suitable for people of Assam. Total 300 subjects from four different villages were selected randomly from two districts. Fifteen body dimensions useful for agricultural equipment design were selected and dimensions were taken with the help of anthropometric rod and measuring tape.
