View Full Version : trunk segment anthropometrics

10-15-2005, 02:13 AM

I am trying to build a 3D model of the trunk for sit-to-stand research. I am
collecting data on movement by these separate segments: head, cervical region,
thoracic region, lumbar region, pelvis, thighs, shanks, arms. The only
anthropometric data I have come across treats the trunk as one segment. Does
anyone know where I could find anthropometric estimates for the percentage of
body mass contributed by each of the separate trunk segments?
