  • Design Constraints: Anthropometry
    Many students join school late
    4 years at pre-primary
    Repeats due to poor performance
    Even 17yr olds in Class 8
    Average height of Ladakhi children lower than National Average
    • Design to very adjustable and flexible
    • Cater to 4yrs to 17 yrs
    • Adjustments to be simple and secure (One tool)
