„The definition used here is the definition of Jensen (1986).
(2)Predictive model
„The ratio of the segment mass is calculated using a regression equation that includes age as an independent variable.
(3)Validation
A. Comparison between the direct measurement of body weight and measurement by photogrammetry.
šerror: 0.05%
B. Comparison between the results of cadaver segmentation obtained by Winter and those obtained in the present study.
šoverestimated the upper arm and thigh segment
šunderestimated the head and forearm segment
