  1. Relationship between height, sitting height and subischial leg length in Dutch children : presentation of normal values.

    Article - En anglais

    A widely used method of judging body proportions is to consider the ratio of sitting height to height (SH/H) related to age.

    A drawback of this method is that only one derived variable is used.

    A pairwise consideration of the original measurements provides more information.

    In this study data from the cross-sectional Oosterwolde I growth study are used to present normal values for the ratio SH/H for age, as well as values for sitting height related to height and subischial leg length.

    A comparison is made with other studies.
