H-point Manikin/ SIP Measure

The SAE Standard has been prepared to provide a universal three-dimensional manikin for use in defining vehicle seating accommodation. This represents the weight and contour of an adult male in the 10th, 50th & 95th percentiles. Constructed of reinforced plastic and metal, the SAE Standard consists of a separate back pan and seat pan mechanically hinged at the hip or ‘H” point, which simulates the actual pivot center of the human torso and thigh.
