Abstract

Utilizing the database of human body measurement of Chinese adults, 128 regression equations of inertial parameters of adult human body segments were established in the study on the base of research on inertial parameters of young human body segments using the CT method. These equations includes: the binary and plural regression equations that calculate segmental mass and center of mass of adult male or a female; the binary and plural regression equations that calculate segmental and the whole body inertial moments of adult male or female. A measuring system consisting of a three-wire pendulum instrument and center of gravity plank is also devised in the study. After measuring the selected Chinese adults (80 males and 40 females), the regression equations of inertial parameters of Chinese adults are verified. A national standard was subsequently established.
