Designers want to design products that are usable. In the case of physical products that means they should have the right dimensions. It's therefore necessary to use anthropometric data — measurements of the human body — when designing products.
DINED is an online set of data, tools and resources to apply anthropometry in design. At its heart lies a large database of human body measurements gathered by researchers at Delft University of Technology. The tools and resources around it are designed to make it easy for designers to use this data in their projects.
While responsible for DINED I updated the design and technology to better fit this goal and to support future improvements and features. I designed and developed several new tools.
