Estimation of stature from forearm length with reference to Stylion in young, adult and aged population

Author: LASYA.G , KARTHIK GANESH MOHANRAJ
Abstract: Stature is a primary characteristic of identification of a person, even though it can be easily measured in living, but in cases of mass disasters, with dismembered bodies, stature estimation can be difficult. Comparing the height of the individuals in correlation with the forearm length, foot length, head length have been studied by many researchers. The estimation of the height of individuals from the skeletal structures bears immense importance in the sciences in addition to the long bones, humerus, femur etc., the forearm length was also used for this purpose. The aim of the study was to know the correlation between stature and forearm length. This serves an important factor in forensic sciences. The present study was done in 100 subjects, and their stature was noted and forearm length was measured. In this study, the parameters were analysed and tabulated. The study shows a positive correlation between the height of the individuals and forearm length. The regression equation derived in this study can be of great help to forensic sciences, anatomists and clinicians. The forearm being a parameter can be used for estimating the height of an individual.
