View Full Version : Anthropometry for "AT" segment?

Dear all,

A colleague and I are doing an link-segment analysis that requires
anthropometry for the Trunk-Arms segment, i.e. the HAT segment minus the
Head - a sort of cockney "AT" segment!

Does anyone have location of CoM and Radius of Gyration data for such a
segment (we have segment mass). It seems to be the only permutation
missing from the Dempster data, but I'm sure someone has measured it.
Incidentally, the arms are held clasped against the chest.

TIA!

Chris
