A person's stature when standing is less than the total body length measured with the person supine. This is due to the effect of gravity.
In general, supine length is about 1.04 cm greater than standing height in the adult.
estimated stature in cm =
= (0.993 * (supine length in cm)) + 0.095
plus or minus 0.815 cm
