  • trunk anthropometric responses

    Here are the responses to my inquiry about trunk anthropometric data:

    Zatsiorsky's anthropometric model separates the trunk in three parts.
    Look at Zatsiorsky's book (Kinetics of Human Motion) or de Leva's
    paper (J Biomech, 1996) for details.

    Erdmann, Wlodzimierz S. (1997) Geometric and inertial data of the trunk in
    adult males. Journal of Biomechanics, Volume 30, No. 7. Pp. 679-688.

    The following papers looked at 3D trunk anthropometrics using MRI(1) and
    CT(2) imaging, however the results are based on 26 males and 2 males/2
    females, respectively. Results were compared to other predictive models in
    the literature.

    the human trunk of males determined from magnetic resonance imaging. Ann
    Biomed Eng, 22: 692-706.

    (2) Pearsall, D.J., Reid, J.G and Livingston, L.A. (1996). Segmental
    inertial parameters of the human trunk as determined from computed
    tomography. Ann Biomed Eng, 24: 198-210.

    Zatsorsky has developed regression equations and geometric models for all
    segments of the human body. You can find predictive equations for both males
    and females in:

    determining mass-inertial characteristics of human body segments. In:

    Thanks for all the replies.
