Up until now, the research published in relevant sources showed that the body measurements of wheelchair users are fairly different from the body measurements of the able-bodied. As such, designing spaces, equipment and garments for wheelchair users based on the able-bodied population anthropometric is not very wise. The purpose of this project is to define the set of body measurements required to correctly design garments for wheelchair users. The definition of the body measurements necessary will be based on both previous studies and on the knowledge of experts in the field that are involved in the project. At this stage of the project we need a visual representation of the measurements to be collected. So, the role of the student to be appointed is to support with the development of a set of twelve 2D computer drawings of a person sitting on a wheelchair. The versions of the drawings required are as follows:

- Person sitting on a regular wheelchair wearing clothes;

o Front, side, and back views

- Person sitting on a regular wheelchair wearing only underwear

o Front, side, and back views

- Person sitting on a wheelchair without armrests wearing clothes;

o Front, side, and back views

- Person sitting on a regular wheelchair without armrests wearing only underwear

o Front, side, and back views

The student to be appointed will be required to work up to 19 hours only to achieve the 12 designs.
