Background and aims: Access to an Anthropometric database is essential for human-centered design. Several Iranian researchers preceded their studies with the aim of collecting useful data for designing workstations. The present study aims to review all of these related studies in order to introduce the state of the art and help to clarify future studies. 

Methods: Databanks of Google scholar, SID, Iranmedex, Magiran, MedLib and Civilica were looked for finding related literature by means of appropriate keywords. 699 papers were found in national databanks; while 900 were found in the Google scholar. Inclusion criteria were set as having the aim of collecting Iranian adults’ anthropometric data for workstation or tool design.

Results: 4/99 percent of all studies were entered to the study (i.e. 25 papers). Literature dated from 1977 to 2014. Their methodologies and findings were compared.

Conclusion: Results showed that existed studies are applicable according to their methodologies; meaning that applying their results into general Iranian population would have some limitations. Therefore, it is necessary to do up-to date the existed anthropometric tables; as well as to produce a comprehensive table for Iranian anthropometric dimensions.
