Anthropometric Measurements and Model Evaluation of Mass-Inertial Parameters of the Human Upper and Lower Extremities
Based on our own anthropometric measurements of 50 Bulgarian men and 52 women that complement the representative anthropological investigation  of the Bulgarian population aged 30-40 years, we present a method for determining the mass-inertial characteristics of upper and lower arm, thigh and shank of the human body using 3D geometrical modelling. The segments are modeled via threedimensional versions of right elliptical stadium solids. The comparison performed between our model results and data reported in literature demonstrates that this modelling is successful being closer to the real shape of the segments envisaged.
