The Handbook of Anthropometry is an invaluable addition to the reference libraries of a broad spectrum of health professionals, among them health scientists, physicians, physiologists, nutritionists, dieticians, nurses, public health researchers, epidemiologists, exercise physiologists, and physical therapists.
Although its underlying concept is a relatively simple one—the measurement of the human body and its parts—anthropometry employs a myriad of methods and instruments, and is useful for a variety of purposes, from understanding the impact of disease on individuals to tracking changes in populations over time. The first interdisciplinary reference on the subject, the Handbook of Anthropometry. Biomechanics Lab Report. This lab report is based on the Anthropometrics practical session that took place in week three. Introduction. The aim of the session was to find out what our Anthropometrical measures were and how they would compared to some typical figures that were given out at the time. Book Description.
