View Full Version : Anthropometric Data Specific to Women

03-13-2009, 12:55 AM
Hi All,

I am doing some calculations requiring anthropometric data (i.e. Segment Weight/Total Body Weight and Center of Mass/Segment Length). I was planning to use information provided in David A. Winter's book Biomechanics and Motor Control of Human Movement, 2nd edition, Table 3.1 on page 56-57 referencing Dempster. However, female specific anthropometric data would really be more appropriate for my application, but I have been having difficulty locating this on my own.

Therefore, I was wondering if anyone on the listserve had a data source for Segment Weight/Total Body Weight and Center of Mass/Segment Length that was female specific.

Any leads are much appreciated.

Best - Denise
