dcterms.abstractOne of the primary purpose of head related products is to protect the head. To perform their function well, these products need to be in close contact with the head, so in order to ensure a good fit, the designers need accurate anthropometric data. Till date only a few studies have been conducted on Indian adult population to acquire their head shape data and hence there is a need of conducting such studies so as to help in customizing products for Indian population. In this paper authors presents a preliminary investigation of four anthropometric parameters namely head length, width, circumference and anterior height. Thirty male and thirty female adults participated in the study, in which their anthropometric measurements were acquired from 3D head models developed from Computed Tomography (CT) image data. The acquired data was further statistically analyzed to create an understanding of the head shape of Indian adults. The mean values of the acquired data showed the difference in sizes of males and female heads. The analysis also showed a significant correlation between head length and circumference for both male and female participants.en_US
