English term or phrase: sideways reach

Anthropometry, the measurement of man provides the dimensional data needed for the positioning of controls and the size of work spaces. Statute (height upto head), eye height, shoulder height, elbow height, knuckle height (upto the palm of hanging hand), sitting height, shoulder width, breadth across elbows, upward reach, sideway reach, forward reach, hand length, hand breadth etc. are main human dimensions as stated by W.T. Singleton. Biomechanics is concdrned with the application of forces by the human body. This requires knowledge of the locations of the main muscle groups, their composition and their modes of action.
