Determination of stature is a major concern in forensic medicine and forensic anthropology. When highly decomposed and mutilated dead bodies with fragmentary remains are brought for postmortem examination, it becomes difficult to identify the deceased. In such a situation, even a small clue is useful for forensic pathologist. Determination of stature is an important parameter of personal identification along with others like age, sex, race, etc. The present investigation is an attempt to… Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that all the cephalo-facial measurements are strongly and positively correlated (p<0.001) with stature and the measurements of the cephalic region have strong correlation with stature than those of facial region. Expand
Estimation of stature from the foot and its segments in a sub-adult female population of North India
TLDR
It is concluded that foot measurements have a strong relationship with stature in the sub-adult female population of North India and can be successfully estimated from the foot and its segments using different regression models derived in the study. Expand
Estimation of stature from combined length of forearm and hand in Jammu region of India
Estimation of stature is a major cause of concern in forensic medicine and forensic anthropology. It becomes difficult to predict the physical identification of an individual when only fragmentaryExpand
Prediction of Stature from Foot Dimensions in A Jat Sikh Population of North India
Establishing the identity of the victim is an important phase in investigation of medicolegal and forensic cases. Stature estimation plays an important and key role in such investigations. TheExpand
Estimation of stature from index and ring finger length in a North Indian adolescent population.
TLDR
The present research derives the linear regression models and multiplication factors for estimating stature from IFL and RFL and concludes that the living stature can be predicted with a reasonable accuracy in adolescent population of North India. Expand
A STUDY ON ESTIMATION OF STATURE FROM FOOT LENGTH
TLDR
Dimensions of feet can provide good reliability in estimation of stature and a significant and positive correlation was found between foot length and stature in male and female subjects and regression equation was framed for both sexes. Expand
Effect of fusion status of sternum in stature estimation - A study from South India.
TLDR
The accuracy and reliability of stature estimation from sternum and its segments is quite low in practical situations and the fusion status of the sternum is likely to affect the reliability and accuracy in estimation of stature. Expand
Stature estimation from the lengths of the growing foot-a study on North Indian adolescents.
TLDR
The study shows the growth pattern of feet in North Indian adolescents and indicates that anthropometric measurements of the foot and its segments are valuable in estimation of stature in growing individuals of that population. Expand
Analysis of footprint and its parts for stature estimation in Indian population.
TLDR
The footprints can provide a reliable estimate of stature in forensic investigations and a statistically significant sex difference in the footprint length measurements between males and females in both right and left feet is observed. Expand
Stature and Build
Stature and build are the important components of personal identification in forensic casework. Estimating stature and build is thus fundamental in the evaluation of dismembered and skeletal remains.Expand

Estimation of stature from dimensions of hands and feet in a North Indian population.
TLDR
The study examines the relationship between stature and dimensions of hands and feet among Rajputs of Himachal Pradesh -- a North Indian endogamous group to find the foot length provides highest reliability and accuracy in estimating stature of an unknown individual. Expand

Careful examination of foot impressions can provide important evidences and clues in a crime scene investigation. The present study is conducted on a cross-sectional sample of 1040 adult male GujjarsExpand
Estimation of stature from body parts.
TLDR
The study suggested that estimation of a living height can be made possible using various dimensions of the lower extremity and one must consider differences between populations in order to apply functions as such to others. Expand
Determination of adult stature from metatarsal length.
TLDR
Given that metatarsals are more likely to be preserved unbroken than are long bones and given the ease with which they are accurately measured, the formulae presented here should prove useful in the study of historic and even prehistoric populations. Expand
Calcaneal measurement in estimation of stature of South African blacks.
TLDR
Regression equations were obtained for estimation of the stature of the South African black population from the calcaneus, and the standard error of estimate was higher than the corresponding values using multivariate regression analysis. Expand

TLDR
By careful reconstruction and examination of the skeleton, the investigators were able to determine not only age, race, and sex, but also trauma sustained to the head and left arm at the time of death. Expand

TLDR
The resulting standard error of estimate, which is a measure of the accuracy of the equations, compared well with the values that have been recorded for fragments of long bones, thereby making the calcaneus a reliable skeletal element in the estimation of adult stature of South Africans of European descent.

Predictive value of human footprints in a forensic context.
TLDR
This study provides a quantitative method that could be used both with partial footprints and in the absence of dermatoglyphics to assist in the identification of an individual in a forensic context. Expand
Stature and sex estimate using foot and shoe dimensions.
TLDR
It was found that in sex estimate, foot and shoe lengths are better in helping the estimate than width measurements, and that the use of shoe measurements rather than bare foot measurements are better to obtain meaningful results. Expand
Sexual dimorphism in foot length proportionate to stature
TLDR
Given the biomechanical challenges posed by pregnancy, smaller female proportionate foot length is somewhat surprising, as foot length affects dorsoventral stability, and it is possible that the observed pattern reflects intersexual selection for small female foot size, a cue of youth and nulliparity.
