Abstract

Physique assessment is important for many sports ergonomics applications. Examples from sports including cycling, rowing, tennis and golf and shoe and clothing design for able-bodied athletes are initially provided. The final section focuses on athletes with a disability to illustrate the use of athlete dimensions for sports ergonomics applications to optimise performance in adults and child athletes.
