Women’s shoes (and men’s shoes to a lesser extent) are subject to periodic changes in fashion. The products and spaces we design will presumably remain in use over several of these fashion cycles. In theory therefore we should base our heel height correction on the midpoint about which these cycles oscillate. In theory also we should add an increment to the standard deviation of our dimension as well as the mean, to allow for variability in heel height. In practice, however, variability in heel height is small compared with anthropometric variability and a uniform increment to all percentiles will be adequate.

5th %ile. 3 The principle of the limiting user The limiting user is that hypothetical member of the user population who, by virtue of his or her physical (or mental) characteristics, imposes the most severe constraint on the design of the artefact. In clearance problems the bulky person is the limiting user; in reach problems the small person is the limiting user. 4 Posture A person’s working posture will be determined (at least in part) by the relationship between the dimensions of his body and those of his workstation.
