A comparison of two anthropometry methods for the estimation of frame size in Venezuelan adults


, : A comparison of two anthropometry methods for the estimation of frame size in Venezuelan adults. Archivos Latinoamericanos de Nutricion 49(4): 344-350

This study compared two of the anthropometric methods used to classify individuals according to frame size: Grant method (height (cm)/wrist circumference (cm)) and Frame index 2 (elbow breadth (mm)/height (cm)x100) in order to identify coincidence, concordance and divergence between then. Data from 249 apparently healthy individuals, between the ages of 22 and 63, belonging to "Health Project: Administration employees of the Simon Bolivar University" were included.
