Fellow Biomechanicians,

I would greatly appreciate any help in calculating the reach envelope for
various sized (anthropometric) persons. If there is a calculation or any
references for calculating Reach Envelope, please forward me that
information.

Also, what is the difference between the Zone of Convenient Reach and the
Reach Envelope? As I understand it, the ZCR (as the name implies) is a
convenient reach measurement (reach limit without undue exertion by the
user) whereas the Reach Envelope is the extreme reach measurement. Please
let me know if this is a correct understanding.

Thank you so much for any information.

Best regards,
Matt
