Questions related to Anthropometrics
Hi, I'm looking for datasets like the Baracca dataset, containing both pictures of people (not 3D scans) with their body measurements (e.g. shoulder width, leg length, etc.)
Do you know where I can find such dataset ?
I have surveyed and collected data of 100 family about demographic, socioeconomic, nutrition knowledge and anthropometric data. Now I want to publishe in research paper.
Has anyone developed or found specific anthropometric models for this population in the scientific literature?
I'm looking for this to solve a problem in my clinical practice..
In India Navratri celebration are done for 9 days in which people do fasting (different patterns) , however the effect of fasting on health during Navratri has not been explored , with different studies exploring the same effect on festivals like Ramadan. We carried out a pilot exploratory study among 50 healthy adults willing to perform intermittent fasting (Fasting period of 12 hours) .Anthropometric , Biochemical and inflammatory parameters were assessed before fasting and day after completion of fasting .There was a significant reduction in Body Weight, Waist Circumference and Hip Circumference during the intermittent fasting period . There was significant lower levels of Total Cholesterol and LDL . However, there was a significant increase markers like TNF-alpha, IL-1, IL-6, and IL-8. How can we justify our results showing reduction in key Anthropometric parameters and biochemical parameters like cholesterol in a short span of 9 days and paradoxical increase in pro-inflammatory markers?
I have 2 groups I tested before and after the experiment. Comparing the HR, BP, and other anthropometric before and after in control and experiment groups. Used Wilcoxon signed-rank test to compare before and after results in each group, which method is best for statistical analysis of controls over experiment group before and after. The number of subjects is between 5 to 10 in each group.
My research detected a common measurement system in all buildings, from the protohistoric period until the introduction of the metric system. It's simple, is based on sides and diagonals of a anthropometric reference square, and is very efficient for the design and dimensional coordination works (see my publications).
However no written sources are known. So, could it be a secret for millennia? We have a new paradigm on the measure in the past?
I want to check difference between anthropometric and physiological parameters of athletic and non-athletic adolescents but also want to check the differences between males and female between the athletic and non-athletic adolescents. Which test should I apply ? I am unable to apply t-test after splitting the files by gender.
I am analyzing a dataset. There I have a group of participants whose age range is 10-17 years. I have their gender, date of birth, height and weight. I want to measure their BMI for age, z-score and percentile using WHO guidelines. WHO provides "Anthro Survey Analyser" to calculate these but in the default format, it can calculate the BMI for the age of under 5 years children (0-60 months) only (both in online anthro tool and offline anthro software).
So, how can I calculate the BMI for age, z score, and percentile of 10-17 years age group children using WHO Anthro Software or Online Survey Analyzer?
Good day, everyone. I have been trying to search for good methods in quantifying only muscle mass, other than generally classical anthropometric methods in humans, and I wished to ask if there are present techniques that account for muscle length and quality in humans.
It could be through clinical procedures or with specialized apparatuses.
Prompted by a design project from students working on a height-adjustable product, I'm wondering whether there have been any studies into ergonomic / human-factors aspects of couples, such as height differences between partners.
I am going to construct models of the human body to use for crash safety analysis, and I need help to get started with my selection of representative individuals. I am not skilled in statistics or experimental design (mechanical engineer).
I am starting from four desciptive parameters of a human : Age, sex, BMI (Body Mass Index) and Stature.
If I choose a sex, an age, a BMI and stature, I have all the information I need to create a human body model.
I also know the distributions of BMI, Age, and Stature of the population (female and male or combined), and assume that sex is 50/50.
Also, I know that all the parameters will influence my results in terms of injury risk evaluation given a certain crash (females more likely to become injured in similar crash, old age associated with higher injury risk, Higher than normal BMI increases risk of certain injuries, stature affects seating position and interaction with airbags etc.)
If I could construct only 1 model how should I choose it? If I can construct 5 models? 10? 100? The goal is to be as representative as possible of the entire population with the N models I have.
Is this possible to answer?
Any hints on reading?
For the metric interpretation of the architectures prior to the metre (SI).
We seek resources (sponsors, architects, archaeologists, historians, anthropologists, restorers, mathematicians, ...) from any country, preferably European.
Next goal: Europa Nostra Awards 2018.
They are considered nineteenth century (neo-alhambreño) but their anthropometric analysis shows the same metric as the palaces of the Alhambra (except modern tiles).Do you know any other procedures to date them?
Research topic: Profiling of Anthropometric, speed and muscular strength among male rugby players at the University of Venda.
I´m working on an article investigating the optimal somatotype and body composition of triathletes. I´m searching for anthropometric characteristics of female and male triathletes competing in different distances and different skill levels
What kind of software application can be used to obtain various anthropometric dimensions of human body from image of such?
I am looking for a model to calculate bone lengths and joints depth for human hand fingers. I know the paper of Buchholz for predicting bone lengths but I need the joints depth as well.
I would like to compare the Body Adiposity Index (BAI) in Europe and Brazilian adolescents, seen that mainly female brazilian adolescents have a higher hip circumferende than the world's average.
Would be aweesome hip circumfernece, height, weight, sex, age and related.
Thanks in advance
Standard anthropometric data related to average anterior abdomen wall displacement, average frequency and duration of uterine contractions during labor. Where can I find these data?
I have looked into classic articles (e.g. Dempster, 1955; Zatsiorsky (1983)...), but they only present equations to calculate segment weight from total body weight. I am curious if there is a way to calculate mass of an individual muscle from anthropometric data, for example total body weight, forearm length or circumference.
I am attempting to track down reliable data concerning BMI/BSA (anthropometrics) of the German population. So far, my search has not revealed any optimal data. I would be interested in Data from the last 10 years ideally.
The question is based on the need for the development of local Anthropometric Standards for the Africa Region. The intention is to assess the feasibility of pooling local databases at sub-regional levels through local Children Studies and using the same Methodologies and Analysis as WHO, arrive at the feasibility of the correct and accurate interpretation of the locally developed Anthropometric Standards for height, weight, sitting height, Head Circumference, Relaxed Upper Arm Circumference, Bi-iliac and Bi-acromial Diameters and Skinfolds from the biceps,triceps, supra-iliac and Sub-scapula sites.
I'm looking for anthropometric data (at minimum measurements for stature) for any matrilineal populations. Preferably differentiated for males and females. Can you provide or point me to the location of such data?
By ergonomic design/modification we can increase output of the operator with great safety and comfort. Exports are invited to highlight the way to strengthen the ergonomic design aspects.
With spontaneous breathing freely working muscles of inspiration and expiration. Is it possible considering the anthropometric parameters and volume velocity inspiratory and expiratory muscle strength to calculate the inhalation and exhalation?
Im looking for anthropometric databases with the most accurate measurements and procedures (DEXA?).
I need to test own developed formula to calculate basal metabolic rate and other energy requirements against real measurements taken as accurate as possible.
We have two independent groups that have both had repeated measures completed, to give us a percentage change in a number of anthropometric and physical assessments.
We want to know whether we can compare the difference in the change for each group using the group-averaged % change from repeated measures, using Cohen's d and examine further using magnitude based inferences?
We want to do this without using ANOVA or NHST
Using Z score systems in reference to a certain population, the following terms are employed- stunted (< 2 S.D. for height-for-age), wasted (<2 S.D. weight-for-age) and underweight (< 2 S.D. weight-for-height.
However, how do their rates vary in a study population despite the fact that they all represent under-nutrition .
Moreover, what inference can be drawn from such variance ?
Is it due to a specific attribute to population or an inherent characteristic of the index itself?
I have found in-
Carter JEL. The Heath-Carter Anthropometric Somatotype Instruction Manual. Revised Edition, San Diego, U.S.A., San Diego State University. 2002.
SAM =∑SADi / nX
Where: SADi = somatotype of each subject minus the mean somatotype of the group; nX is the numberin the group x.
please explain this how can I exicute it.
I am searching for sources of information on anthropometric measures in order to make my project to graduate. The aim is to check if the bone structure is associated with increased fat mass.
I have been trying to look into finding a way to plot this data in an electronic format to facilitate clinicians to be able to tell what gentile patients are in for their growth velocity.
I managed to find the original reference graphs within this article (Tanner & Davies 1984) http://www.jpeds.com/article/S0022-3476(85)80501-1/abstract
I want to see if anyone knows what the formula is for this line or if any of you may be able to point me to a source where I could find these details. Ultimately would like to be able to put in the age and growth velocity and calculate what percentile it was.
If the equation is out there maybe you could help let me know if it is possible to calculate the other centiles from just the 50th?
