     Q: Can you clarify your question?  Are you looking for fitting instructions for off-the-orthotics or something more custom?

    A: More the former – looking for anthropometric fit data to use to design a range of joint support/coverage applications.

    Julie – The contact regarding the project in California is Luke Pritchard at Engineers Without Borders – [email protected].

    Let me know how it goes.

    My impression (and this is not an expert opinion), is that there is no central "without borders" group.  If you google the phrase "without borders" you get all sorts of things…doctors, artists, architects, MBAs, vets, soccer….

    David – would you know of anyone I should put in touch with regarding the project I mentioned in my previous posting?

    David – Thanks so much for your detailed response.  I think that answers my question regarding current ergonomic support activities for developing countries.  I’d also like to add that I did hear back from Engineers Without Borders about a project that could potentially use ergonomic input.  They referred me to a project being done by the UC Santa Barbara chapter who are working on a human powered sorghum grinder for communities in Mali.  If anyone is interested in getting in touch with this group (particularly if you are located near Santa Barbara), contact me directly and I will forward the information.

    As one starting point, I have been in touch with Engineers Without Borders (U.S.A.) – http://www.ewb-usa.org/
    to find out if they have any existing projects where they think ergonomic design support might be helpful.  I’ll let you know what I hear back.
