Abstract

A set of regression equations was developed to fully utilize the data of Chandler et al. (AMRL Technical Report 74-137, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, 1975) to estimate segmental moments of inertia in living subjects. Using anthropometric measurements as predictors, moments of inertia can be computed about both transverse and longitudinal axes passing through each segment's center of mass. Symmetry about segment long axes is assumed. Because of the small sample size upon which these equations are based, it is suggested that they be used cautiously, especially to avoid extrapolation to subjects having anthropometric measurements outside the range of sample values.
