182 anthropométrie measurements were taken bilaterally on six embalmed cadavers (3 male, 3 female). The cadavers were segmented by severance through soft tissue only into 14 segments, (viz. head, trunk, thigh, leg, foot, arm, forearm and hand). Regression equations for the prediction of anatomical segment masses from intra-segmental anthropometry were derived. These were shown to be of comparable prediction quality to an existing biomechanical segment mass prediction model, and significantly better (p<0.01) than a percentage-of-bodyweight prediction model.
