Abstract: The intention of this study was to construct segment density profiles and compare segment inertias calculated when uniform densities and profile densities are used in a mathematical model. Axial densities from computerized tomography (CT) slices for the body segments of a sample of Chinese females (Zheng et al., Proceedings of the Beijing Asian Games Scientific Congress, 1990) were used to form profiles which could be employed in body segment models. Polynomials based on proportion of segment length were fitte…
