Moment of inertia

The following table shows regression equations.

Note:
EThe 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.
EWeight in kg, moment of inertia in gEcm2 and segment length and stature in mDNote:

Ex.)Moment of inertia of the trunk around x-axis(gEcm2)-6.09~106-8.74~103~stature(cm){3.23~105~body weight(kg)
