I am a Physical Therapist doing research on seating design.I am
looking for information on the contours of human-seat interfaces.
That is, the shape of the seat which conforms to the human form.
There is much data on antrhopometric dimensions and
some on contours, but I have been unable to find much on the
contours of the seat that occur while sitting. Are there any
instruments capable of measuring these contours through time besides
by "casting" shapes at certain points in time ?
