One-hundred and sixty-four children (97 boys and 67 girls) aged 7–9 y were studied. The main characteristics of these children are shown in Table the recruitment of these Cited by: A comparative study of anthropometric and body composition analysis variables in different human constitution types of Indian T raditional Medicine Pallavi L C 1, Sivakumar G 1, Krishna Malagi 2.

In that study, Lutsey et al. compared the associations between anthropometries and diabetes risk among four racial or ethnic groups (white, Chinese, black, and Hispanic) and reported that relative to white people, a 1-SD increase in most anthropometric measures was associated with a lower risk of incident diabetes for blacks but a greater risk of diabetes for Chinese.

Hispanics were similar to whites. Anthropometry is important in product or environment designs based on human factors. Specific anthropometric databases should be established for certain of populations, especially for different genders, ages and races.

In this study, preschool children (from two to six years old) were recruited. An electromagnetic motion analysis system, measuring tape, an electronic scale and.

Anthropometry, the systematic collection and correlation of measurements of the human one of the principal techniques of physical anthropology, the discipline originated in the 19th century, when early studies of human biological and cultural evolution stimulated an interest in the systematic description of populations both living and extinct.

Body Measurements (Anthropometry) Westat, Inc. Research Boulevard Rockville, MD Anthropometry is the study of the measurement of the human body in terms of the dimensions of bone, muscle, and adipose (fat) tissue.

Accurate anthropometric measurements are paramount to providers adequately assessing the health of children and adolescents and in choosing appropriate treatments and interventions necessary to maintain or improve health.

This section covers common anthropometric measurements used to assess a child’s health during a routine well-child visit. In book: Handbook of Anthropometry (pp) Edition: ; Chapter: Anthropometric Measurements and Nutritional Status in the Healthy Elderly Population In a study.

The objective was to compare ethnic differences in anthropometry, including size, proportions and fat distribution, and body composition in a cohort of seventy Caucasian (forty-four boys, twenty-six girls) and seventy-four urban Indigenous (thirty-six boys, thirty-eight girls) children (aged 9–15 years).

The Seychelles study also revealed that among % and % of obese boys and girls, respectively, the prevalence of high BP was % in boys and % in girls []. Both SBP and DBP were strongly associated with BMI in boys and in girls. Overweight (and obesity) could account for 18% of cases of elevated BP in boys and 26% in girls.

Background of Anthropometric Measurements Anthropometry is the study of the measurement of the human body in terms of the dimensions of bone, muscle, and adipose (fat) tissue. The word “anthropometry” is derived from the Greek word “anthropo” meaning “human” and the Greek word “metron” meaning “measure” (Ulajaszek, ).

Although its underlying concept is a relatively simple one—the measurement of the human body and its parts—anthropometry employs a myriad of methods and instruments, and is useful for a variety of purposes, from understanding the impact of disease on individuals to tracking changes in populations.

The Caucasian race (also Caucasoid or Europid) is an outdated grouping of human beings historically regarded as a biological taxon which, depending on which of the historical race classifications is used, has usually included ancient and modern populations from all or parts of Europe, Western Asia, Central Asia, South Asia, North Africa, and the Horn of Africa.

Anthropometric data is used for the study of human body measurement for anthropological classification and comparison. It includes body measurements, such as height, weight and hand size, and functional measurements, principally concerning how far people can reach in different directions.

Objectives It is important to ascertain which anthropometric measurements of obesity, general or central, are better predictors of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk in women. year CVD risk was calculated from the Framingham risk score model, SCORE risk chart for high-risk regions, general CVD and simplified general CVD risk score models.

Increase in CVD risk associated with 1 SD increment. Anthropometric measurements are systematic measurements of the size, shape and composition of the human body. They are useful in many fields, including athletics, healthcare, and research. Reference tables and curves for boys, girls, and both sexes combined are presented elsewhere [26].

Nonetheless, the interpretation of low MUAC based on a fixed cut-off is still of value for certain applications, especially when it is desirable to give priority to younger children, who are more vulnerable to morbidity and mortality.

Anthropometric Measurements. The term anthropometric refers to comparative measurements of the body. Anthropometric measurements are used in nutritional assessments.

Those that are used to assess growth and development in infants, children, and adolescents include length, height, weight, weight-for-length, and head circumference (length is used in infants and toddlers, rather than height.

National Journal of Physiology, Pharmacy and Pharmacology, 8 (7). ISSN Anthropometry (from Greek ἄνθρωπος anthropos, 'human', and μέτρον metron, 'measure') refers to the measurement of the human early tool of physical anthropology, it has been used for identification, for the purposes of understanding human physical variation, in paleoanthropology and in various attempts to correlate physical with racial and psychological traits.

The specific aim of this study was to determine the differences between 6 anthropometric (taken from the surface) and cephalometric (taken from x-rays) measurements and 12 proportion indices formed by the measurements obtained from the face of 51 healthy Caucasoid young adult males and females.

Craniofacial anthropometry by direct caliper measurements is a common method of quantifying the morphology of the cranial vault. New digital imaging modalities including computed tomography and three-dimensional photogrammetry are similarly being used to obtain craniofacial surface measurements.

This study sought to compare the accuracy of anthropometric measurements. Anthropometry, clinical measures and dietary assessment provided summary measures of nutritional status.

Anthropometric measurements were taken at the first round and 1, 2, 3, and 6 months later. We used a Salter‐type balance and an ARTHAG‐type wooden length gauge, as recommended by WHO (), and a commercial tape. A comparison of selected anthropometrical measurements between five Negro and five Caucasian female swimmers of varying ability.

For these reasons, anthropometric data are used in many contexts to screen for or monitor disease. Anthropometry, a branch of morphometry, is the study of the size and shape of the components of biological forms and their variations in populations.

Morphometrics can also be defined as the quantitative analysis of biological forms. Craniometry is measurement of the cranium (the main part of the skull), usually the human is a subset of cephalometry, measurement of the head, which in humans is a subset of anthropometry, measurement of the human is distinct from phrenology, the pseudoscience that tried to link personality and character to head shape, and physiognomy, which tried the same for facial features.

Anthropometry, the measurement of human dimensions, is a well-established field with techniques that have been honed over decades of work. The U.S. military, in particular, has performed a number of comprehensive anthropometric studies to provide information for use in the design of military clothing and equipment (Gordon et al., ).Comparative analysis of some anthropometric measurements.
