Anthropometric standardization reference manual

Abstract: This reference manual is designed to serve as a comprehensive set of measurement procedures describing over 40 anthropometric dimensions. The purpose of the manual is to provide a standardized set of descriptions that can be used across disciplines (for example: epidemiology, exercise and sport science, human biology, human nutrition, medicine, physical anthropology, and physical education). The manual also includes a section on special issues such as right vs. left side, measurement error, equipment availability, and applications. The papers on applications show the many applications of anthropometry to research involving children, the elderly, handicapped or obese individuals, clinical nutrition, epidemiology, physical anthropology, sports medicine, and conoray heart disease
