Abstract:

British ergonomist Stephen Pheasant points out, there is no true 5th- or 95th-percentile person; someone who is at the 95th percentile for stature is likely to be at a different percentile on distribution curves for lower leg length or sitting elbow height. So a chair designed to accommodate the middle 95 percent on each of a succession of important dimensions could conceivably exclude a different 5 percent of users with each anthropometric constraint. The end result would be a chair that accommodates considerably less than 95 percent of its potential users.
