Estimation of Stature Using Foot Measurements: A Clinical Study
Keywords:Foot Length, Stature, Forensic Anthropometry.
Background: In forensic anthropology, estimation of stature from feet dimensions plays a significant role in establishing personal identity. The present study was conducted to estimate stature using foot measurements. Materials and Methods: The present study was conducted in sample consisted of 110 healthy individuals in the age group of 20 to 60 years. All the measurements were taken in well-lit room. The standing height method was chosen for measuring stature of each subject. Foot length is the straight distance directly from acropodian to pternion. The recorded data was compiled, and data analysis was done. Results: In the present study58 were males and 52 were females. The average stature for male adults was 165.75 cm and for female adults it was 155.8 cm. The average RFL for males was found to be 24.61 cm. while for females it was 22.04 cm. The average LFL for males was found to be 24.92 cm. while in females it was 22.54cm. The Pearson correlation coefficient of the stature, RFL and LFL for males were statistically significant and there was a positive correlation between stature and foot length. The Pearson correlation coefficient of the stature, RFL and LFL for females were statistically significant and there was a positive correlation between stature and foot length. Conclusion: The present study concluded that there was a statistically significant positive correlation between stature and foot length in both males and females.
