Chumlea et al reported equations for estimating the height of elderly Caucasian adults based on knee height with or without age. The authors are from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.
Subjects: Caucasian male and females from 65 to 104 years of age
The age included fraction of a year.
height of males from 60 to 90 years of age in cm =
= (2.04 * (knee height in cm)) + 60.65
= (2.03 * (knee height in cm)) - (0.04 * (age)) + 64.19
height of females from 60 to 90 years of age in cm =
= (2.06 * (knee height in cm)) + 54.28
= (1.83 * (knee height in cm)) - (0.24 * (age)) + 84.88
