  1. Can we predict body height from segmental bone length measurements ? A study of 3,647 children.

    Article - En anglais

    It is well known that significant differences exist in the anthropometric data of different races and ethnic groups.

    This is a cross-sectional study on segmental bone length based on 3,647 Chinese children of equal sex distribution aged 3-18 years.

    The measurements included standing height, weight, arm span, foot length, and segmental bone length of the humerus, radius, ulna, and tibia.

    A normality growth chart of all the measured parameters was constructed.

    Statistical analysis of the results showed a very high linear correlation of height with arm span, foot length, and segmental bone lengths with a correlation coefficient of 0.96-0.99 for both sexes.

    No differences were found between the right and left side of all the segmental bone lengths.

    These Chinese children were found to have a proportional limb segmental length relative to the trunk.
