Moment of inertia

The following table shows regression coefficients.

Note:
・The origin of the coordinate system for each segment is the center of gravity of that segment. The x-axis is defined as the frontal axis and +x is the direction from origin towards the front of the body. The y-axis is defined as the saggital axis and +y is the dorection from the origin towards the left of the body. The z-axis is defined as the horizontal-axis and +z is direction from the origin towards the head.
・Weight in kg, moment of inertia in kg・cm2, stature in cm.

Ex.)
Moment of inertia of the head around x-axis(kg・cm2)=-78+1.171×body weight(kg)+1.519×stature(cm)
