(1)Definition of body segmentation
Only torso part is meausred

Head and neck|Upper part of torso
suprasternal notch

Upper part of torso|Middle part of torso
xiphoid process

Middle part of torso|Lower part of torso
umbilicus

(2)Predictive model
The ratio of the center of gravity, mass and moment of inertia are calculated using multiple regression equations that include body weight and stature as independent variables.
(3)Validation
A.Comparison between direct measurement of trunk circumference and measurement by MRI.
šError: 2%
B.Repeatability
šLess than 2.5%
