Segmometer for Knee Height Measurement, Forearm Length
What is a segmometer (or anthropometric segmometer)?
The segmometer is used in body measurements (anthropometry) for lengths and heights of bones and limbs. Use a segmometer for knee height measurement, demi-span, and forearm length measurement. It is useful tool for measuring height of bedridden patients, elderly persons, and persons in wheelchairs.
How Much Does a Segmometer Cost?
Segmometers normally cost between $150-250
What are the different types of segmometers?
The two main types of segmometers are rigid and flexible. A rigid segmometer is sometimes called a knee height caliper, Ross knee height caliper, and Shorr knee height caliper. The advantage of a flexible segmometer is that is much more compact and thus easier to transport. Both types can be used for the same measurements.
What is a Knee Height Caliper?
A knee height caliper is a rigid caliper (segmometer). The Shorr knee height caliper, for example, has a range of 0-80cm, much less than the 0-300cm range of the Realmet flexible segmometer, which is also much more lightweight and compact.
