Abstract : A stereophotometric data set, describing the body surface of a subject, was segmented into nineteen groups of stereophotometric data, the data in each group describing the surface of a body segment. The process was repeated for a total of 59 such data sets. The data resulting from each of these segmentation processes were then analyzed for inertial properties and location and orientation of both anatomical and principal axis systems. The accumulated body volume as a function of vertical distance from the floor was also tabulated for all the data sets. (Author)
