dc.description.abstract Abstract Background: An anthropometric study of hand dimensions in Bangladeshi origin living in America was carried out of 165 participants. They were found some significant differences of hand dimensions and compared with other populations. The male and female hand dimensions were differently identified and showed some significant comparisons between Asian with European and American males and females. In the present study there were 186 participants were selected conveniently. Both males and females at the age between 18 to 60 years were included. Standard hand anthropometric measurement of 24 hand dimensions were taken from the participants by using a standard digital slide caliper and measure tape. The study analyse the result about significant difference between the hand dimensions of male and female and the comparison of 24 hand dimensions. This study data will show an idea of interpopulation hand anthropometry of Bangladesh and this data will also help to differentiate with those ethnic groups living in Bangladesh and also for the other population in different countries. Objectives of the study: The objectives of this paper were to find out the hand anthropometric measurements of 24 dimensions among participants living in Bangladesh and were also compared between two genders according to the measurement of twenty four dimensions that was gathered. Methodology: This study was conducted by using quantitative cross sectional analysis of quantitative method. The participants were selected conveniently in the study areas with in age range of 18 to 60. The data was collected by using consent form, slide calipers. The data was analysed by using SPSS (Statistical Package of Social Science). Result and Discussion: There are many significant differences between male and females in adult Bangladeshis. After analysing data, it was found that. The significant t-test showed that the 4 of 24 dimensions of differences in mean were statistically significant of p-value (P<0.05). The major 19 of 24 hand dimensions shows that the differences in mean were highly significant (P<0.01) and the rest of one dimension is greater than (P<0.05). In the present study there were collected 186 samples. Where the male participants were 83and female participants were 103 out of 186. At the end of the findings the researcher found that the female hand length and maximum hand breadth is shorter and narrower than the male hand dimensions. Conclusion: This study has shown a recent data of hand dimensions of Bangladeshi populations. Hand anthropometry deals with the measurement of hand size, shape, and work capacity. The hand anthropometries are frequently used by the protection tools of ergonomically designed safe equipment and ergonomic work stations. This study has to provide a preliminary hand data among Bangladeshis. en_US
