Stature is an important & useful anthropometric parameter to determine the physical identity of an individual and as such, stature prediction occupies a relatively central position in the anthropometric research. Earlier workers in India have studied percutaneous measurement of different bones of upper & lower extremities or feet measurement alone but hardly any work has been done in correlating the length of right upper limb for estimation of stature. The present study has been undertaken with a view to correlate right upper limb measurements with the stature. Analysis is based on the 150 (75 males & 75 females) young & healthy students studying in the Santosh Medical College, Ghaziabad India. Regression formulae were constructed for males& females related to the real body height measurement in the erect standard position. The results indicate that right upper limb length measurements studied were strongly & positively correlated with stature. In conclusion, the study suggested that estimation of a living height can be made possible by the percutaneous measurements of the upper extremity.

Key words:
Stature, Identity, Anthropometry, regression, right upper limb length.
