Ulnar length – A Tool for Stature Estimation
Keywords:Ulnar length, Stature, Linear regression.
Stature is a important factor in identification of an unidentified dead body or any mutilated part of such
body. In present study we made an attempt to estimate the stature from percutaneous length of ulna. Study
consists of 94 adult males and 96 adult females between the age group of 18- 24 years, born and brought
up in Maharashtra. The length of the of the right and left ulna was measured with a venier calliper from the
apex of the olecranon to the styloid process and the height of the individual was measured with a calibrated
standing meter rule. The measurements were noted in the proforma. The data was statistically analyzed and
linear regression formulae were derived.
