A rigorously designed auxological study was carried out to assess the operational characteristics of the knemometer and the value of short term lower leg and height measurements in estimating and predicting rates of linear growth. Measurements were made on 18 normal children monthly for six months and on six normal children weekly for six weeks. Six other children measured weekly underwent tonsillectomy after three weeks to determine the effect of stress on growth. The measurement protocol… CONTINUE READING
