(1)Definition of body segmentation

The body segmentation is performed in 4 batches. Finally, The bodies are dismembered into the following parts:

the head+neck,
shoulder (the shoulder girdle plus all associated muscles, and overlying skin and subcutaneous tissue),
Upper part of torso,
Lower part of torso,
Thigh,
Calf,
Foot,
Upper arm,
Forearm,
Hand.

a)Dismemberment of torso(including head),whole Limbs.
b)Dismemberment of upper arm-forearm,thigh-calf
c)Dismemberment of shoulder

(1)The dismemberment is made from (1)the mastoid process to the suprasternal notch along the anterior edge of the sternocleidmastoid muscle, (2)along the medial border of the pectoralis major muscle, to the fifth chondrosternal junction, (3)then laterally to the lateral limit of the pectoralis major muscle. (4)Next, the dismemberment follows the digitations of the serratus anterior muscle to the anterior margin of the latissimus dorsi M. Next, the dismemberment follows to the crest of the ilium following the anterior edge of the latissimus dorsimuscle. (5)This dismemberment then continues posteriorly along the crest of the ilium to the lateral border of the lumbodorsal fascia. (6)From this point, the dismemberment carries to the 12th thoracic spine and (7)along the spines of the thoracic and cervical vertebrae to the skull. The dismemberment is completed by following the nuchal line to the mastoid process.

d)Dismemberment of torso, forearm-hand, calf-foot
