## What is Somatometry and its parameters?

Somatometry refers to weight, height and body mass index. The measurement of vital signs and the recording of somatometry is a systematic and unavoidable part of any physical examination and is part of the general clinical examination.

**What is Somatometry examples?**

The somatometry technique refers to the group of techniques that allow exact measurements of the dimensions of a body. Body mass index (BMI), height, and weight are variables measured by somatometry.

**What is PDF Somatometry?**

3.1 Somatometry. It is the part of physical anthropology that deals with measurements of the human body. 3.2 Weight. It is the series of maneuvers to quantify the amount in grams of body mass.

### What is infant somatometry?

Pediatric somatometry is the measurement of the human body in its relation to the constitution. We talk about body measurements: weight, length and perimeter.

**What are anthropometric measurements in sport?**

Anthropometric measurements are height, weight and body perimeters. These measurements are essential for a dietetic technician.

**What instruments are used for anthropometric measurements?**

The measurement instruments used for anthropometric studies are the following:

- HEIGHT METER.
- WEIGHING MACHINE.
- ANTHROPOMETER.
- ANTHROPOMETRIC TAPE.
- PAQUIMETER OR SMALL DIAMETER COMPASS.
- CALCIOMETER OR COMPASS OF SKIN FOLDS.

#### What is the perimeter and what do we use it for?

It refers to the contour of a surface or figure and the measure of that contour. In other words, in a figure, the perimeter is the sum of all its sides. In this way, the perimeter allows calculating the border of a surface, so it is very useful.

**How to get the perimeter of the figures?**

The perimeter of a geometric figure can always be calculated by adding the length of each of its sides.

**What is perimeter and how is it measured?**

Perimeter is the measurement obtained as a result of the sum of the sides of a flat geometric figure. That is, the perimeter is what measures the contour of the figure. Perimeter is also a word used in military jargon to refer to a high-security space.
