Abstract : This study was designed to supplement existing knowledge of the weight, volume, and center of mass of segments of the human body and to permit their more accurate estimation on the living from anthropometric dimensions. Weight, volume, and center of mass of 14 segments of the body were determined on 13 male cadavers. Presented are descriptive statistics of these variables as well as a series of regression equations predicting these parameters from anthropometry. Included in the seven… Expand
Anthropometric Relationships of Body and Body Segment Moments of Inertia
Abstract : This report documents the results of a study aimed at demonstrating that mass distribution properties of the human body and its segments can be predicted from anthropometric dimensions.Expand
Geometric and inertial data of the trunk in adult males.

TLDR
Investigations on geometric and inertial quantities of 15 male patients' trunks are described and application of the data for locating the center of mass of the body, for building anthropometric dummies, and for calculating the load acting on any level of a spine are presented. Expand
Distribution of mass to the segments of elderly males and females.
TLDR
A mathematical model which utilizes the shape of the front and side outlines to calculate segment volume, and subsequently mass, is used and differences for all segments were significant, with the exception of the upper trunk and thigh. Expand
Soft tissue segmentation of the body and fractionation of the upper and lower limbs.
The aim of this cadaver analyses study was to provide regression models for the prediction of major tissue components of the human body. Altogether 182 anthropometric measurements were takenExpand
Body segment mass, radius and radius of gyration proportions of children.
  • R. Jensen

  • Journal of biomechanics
  • 1986
TLDR
The effects of growth on selected segmental size and inertial parameters are reported for boys between the ages of 4 and 15 yr, consistent with reports from similar studies and techniques. Expand
Current perspective on assessment of human body proportions of relevance to amputees.
TLDR
Data from 1955 and 1969 showed that human bodies carry greater weight in the head and torso and less weight in legs and arms than indicated by the earlier data, and should be incorporated into the assessment of weight status of amputees. Expand
Determination of body segment masses and centers of mass using a force plate method in individuals of different morphology.
TLDR
A simple force plate method that can be used to determine subject-specific segment masses and COM locations is presented and compared it to other well-known methods and is sensitive to detect differences between various morphological populations. Expand
Anthropometric and biomechanical characteristics on body segments of Koreans.
TLDR
The results showed different features on body segment parameters comparing with the results in the literature, which can be applied to statistical guideline for product design, workspace design, design of clothing and tools, furniture design and construction of biomechanical models for Korean.

Geometry and Inertia of the Human Body
The aim of this paper is to present geometric and inertial quantities of human body and its impact on movement. The external view of whole body and its parts is represented by the length of the lineExpand
Relationship Between Head Mass and Circumference in Human Adults

  • 1962
TLDR
An evaluative review of the literature concerning the locations of the centers of gravity of the human body and body segments shows that the selection of source and the manner of applying center of gravity data will depend on the accuracy required, anthropometric characteristics of the population under study, and equipment and body positions anticipated.

Relationships between flexibility, anthropometry, and the somatotype of college men.
TLDR
Body fat, as measured by skinfold calipers, yielded fairly high significant negative correlations with the flexibility measurements, and generally high correlation coefficients were obtained between the anthropometric measurements and somatotype. Expand
Density, fat, water and solids in freshly isolated tissues.
TLDR
The biological extremes in a water:fat:protein system thus operate in such a way that the quantity of fat can be predicted from an equation containing three variables, i.e. the initial weight and density of a tissue and its quantity of water. Expand
POSTMORTEM STUDIES OF SKINFOLD CALIPER MEASUREMENT AND ACTUAL THICKNESS OF SKIN AND SUBCUTANEOUS TISSUE.
TLDR
The relationships between caliper measurements and actual fat thicknesses without skin can only be established by making a caliper reading, followed by an incision to expose the tela adiposa at the same locus. Expand

The Functional Anthropometry of Old Men1
TLDR
As compared with younger men, the veterans were smaller, lighter, weaker, and had shorter reaches but deeper chests and their skinfolds did not differ. Expand

In order to discover whether statistically significant differences exist between measurements taken on the right and left sides of the body, 21 such anthropometric dimensions were compared. In eightExpand
Physical dimensions of the skin; determination of the specific gravity of skin, hair, and nail.
TLDR
The factors of surface area, absolute and comparative thicknesses of layers, and parts, volume, specific gravity, and weight of the skin do not seem to have loomed important enough to have excited much interest or comment among dermatologists. Expand
