Equations of Jarzem and Gledhill for Predicting Height in Children and Adults Based on Measurements of the Upper Extremities


Jarzem and Gledhill developed equations for predicting height in children or middle aged adults based on 4 different measurements of the upper extremity. This can help determine the height for a person with spinal deformity, amputation or other physical problem that makes direct measurement of height difficult or misleading. The authors are from McGill University and Montreal Children's Hospital.
