Age changes in the basic antropometric characteristics of the average Bulgarian females
G.S. Nikolova, D. M. Dantchev
Abstract: The current article presents a study of the age changes in the basic anthropometric characteristics (body height and body weight) of Bulgarian females. We do that after dividing the measured subjects into three age groups: I) 18-25 years, II) 25-30 years and III) 30-40 years. The data used in the investigation are gathered by performing our own anthropometric measurements. In group I) we measured 36 objects, in group II) – 19, and in group III) – 51 females. We present the average values of the height, weight and body mass index of any of the groups, as well as the corresponding probability distributions of the height, weight and body mass indexes in the groups. The results obtained can be used when one needs such anthropometric and mass characteristics in problems appearing in rehabilitation, medicine (orthopaedics and traumatology), sports, ergonomics, for investigating criminology cases – body fall, car crash, etc.
