I have looked exhaustively for anthropomorphic tables which address handicapped persons, specifically those in wheelchairs. I know this data will vary greatly due to the type of injury, so there may be many tables, but so far I have been unable to find any. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I assumed that information would easily be found in the Federal Register for the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) however not the case, but I did not spend a lot of time there. I just wanted to pass that resource on as a possibility. It may be hidden deeper than I looked. Try http://www.ada.gov/, and http://www.access-board.gov/adaag/about/index.htm. They had to base these measurements and guidelines on "generic" wheelchair users with certain anthropometric stats. Hope this helps. Kathleen Shanfield, OTR/L,MS
