Dear All,

I am currently looking at the effects of the inertia of the lower leg on
injury outcome in pedestrian-car accidents. For this I need some
information regarding body dimensions, such as knee and ankle circumference,
based on a percentile (male and female) scale.

Can anyone please tell me where I can get this type of information?
Preferably ranging from a 5th %ile female to a 95th %ile male.

Many Thanks for your help.
