Discipline: Social Science



In this paper, we provide a mathematical framework for identifying and measuring human body parts. We used this framework to implement a computer-based measurement for the purpose of automating the usual manual process of anthropometry. To test the computer-based system, we measured the hands of 91 individuals using both the manual and the computer-based system. Based on two-tailed t-test, the computer-based system has the same measurement as the manual system at 5% level of significance.
