Author(s): Dr. Bhola Kumar Singh
Abstract: Anthropometric studies today are conducted to investigate the evolutionary significance of differences in body proportion between populations whose ancestors lived in different environments. The study has planned in North Indian Hospital. The 50 patients were willing to participate in the study are enrolled. The various anthropometric measurements like stature, Hand Length, Proximal phalangeal length, distal phalangeal length were noted. From the existing work it can be establish some multiplication factor. Multiplying these multiplication factors with particular parameter gives the idea about some estimated statures which were correlate with the measured stature .All the measurements in this study were a positive as well as a statistically significant correlation with the stature. The study reveals that the multiplication factors are important for the establishing the stature from right hand length for both males and females.
