  • Age, body mass (m), stature (h), sitting height (s), body mass index (BMI=m/h2), mass index (MI1=0.53 m/(h s), MI2=0.532 m/s2); for persons with Cormic index C=s/h=0.53 (ie, an average relative sitting height), BMI equals the MI0.1 ,2 Data are expressed as mean (±SD) followed by the (range). Values of h and s were protocolled with mm-resolution immediately after having reached fully erected posture.
