Public Wudu Place, Virtual Environment, Posture Evaluation Index, Motion Capture, Ergonomics.
This research studied about ergonomics aspect for designing public wudu place in virtual environment. Data collection is conducted with Vicon System and analyzed by Software Jack 6.1. The method of this research is Posture Evaluation Index (PEI) which integrates three methods: Low Back Analysis, Ovako Working Posture Analysis, and Rapid Upper Limb Assessment. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the design of public wudu place and determine the most ergonomics design based on the movement while doing wudu. As for the results, the recommendation for the valve height from floor is 115 cm, the height of feet holder is 30 cm, and the distance between the man and the valve is 35 cm.
