Hello! First of all I would like introduce myself. Im
Oscar Saorin, an Industrial Design student from Spain
(I dont speak english very well, but Ill try), and
Ive already finished my studies. Through the
Intercampus program (and interchange between students
from latinamerica and Spain) I have the chance of
participate in a project in Peru for two months, since
August 16th until October 16th, in the PUCP (Pontificia
Universidad Catolica del Peru) in Lima.

The theme of the project was proposed by Lic Marianella
Chamorro Koc, graduate in Ohio University and
currentlly teacher of ergonomy in the PUCP. The theme
is about a study in the ergonomics (as known as Human
Factors in the USA, I think) of the traditional tools
of the andean agriculture, specially the chakitaqlla.

For this project, since Ive arrived to Lima, Ive been
searching for databases of anthropometry (human body
measures and movements) of the andean adult population.

Ive contacted with several experts (some of them
answered me, another ones didnt) who have helped me to
found some data, but not exactly what I was looking

The reason of my e-mail is to ask you for a little
information, or how getting it, of those anthropometry
data Im looking for.I supposed maybe you could bring
me a little help on this project.

Thanks for your time,
Oscar Saorin
