Abstract: The adequacy and improvements of the artifacts have been the concern of ergonomics, where the focus is the preservation of the physical, mental and social human being. This is the view of the anthropometry which is the measurement science and art of human knowledge of geometry, so it can be defined as the part of anthropology that studies the proportions and measurements of the human body. To defining a new measure anthropometric a statistical study is required with the correct number of samples for the experiment, definitions of the standard deviation and its variance, identification and comparison of means between groups, as the size for example, among other studies as design of the experiment. Knowing that the ballistic helmets used by national armed forces show up discomfort for many users, you must define new measures in the human head for a better dimensioning of the correct helmet proposing a new artifact for that function. Thus in this study a human head anthropometric survey of some potential users ballistic helmets, following a defined statistically, through its basic measures such as circumference, width and height of the head, as well as a new measure that is the height of human head for use of ballistic helmets. This new measure is statistically analyzed for its proof. It is in this scope that fits the purpose of this work that statistically analyzes the height measurement of the human head, based on the sizes of helmets S, M and L and verifies what is the required height for better seating of the product in question. So be correlated which of the measures of the head that is related to this point, in order to check whether it is necessary to analyze this measure for all users or you can check out other measures that are directly related.
