View Full Version : Anthropometry for human animation

Hello, I am developing 2D and 3D ridid body models of the human body. I am
interested in using them to analyse the biomechanics of various sports -
e.g. throwing, javelin, discus, etc. At this stage, I need to obtain
anthropometric measurements that will help me animate my models. Rather
than take measurements of my subjects, I would like to know of any studies
that can provide the width and perimeters of all the main body segments in
terms of total body height and mass. (Please note I am only interested in
anthropometric studies that can help me to animate my figures. I am already
aware of studies that deal with the segmental inertial paramters.)

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thank you.
