Preface: This technical assistance document is based on the results and findings of the Hand Anthropometrics Project (Contract No. 300-84-0247), created to develop an information base for designing products that are used in buildings and intended to be manipulated by hand. The study focused on the abilities of people with disabilities affecting hand strength and coordination, a group for which there is a lack of human factors design data. The citations to volume, part and section in this document refer to the three-volume final report of the project, Hands-On Architecture. Volume One, the main research report, summarizes the literature review and presents the conceptual framework for organizing the research and findings. Volume Two presents a method and data for improving design of buildings consistent with hand and arm abilities of persons with disabilities. Volume Three, the basis for this technical assistance document, contains an Executive Summary of the project and a set of recommendations or guidelines that can improve building design.
