Abstract

Stature is one of the primary identifying features helpful in both living and dead. In this study we determined
the stature from the percutaneous length of ulna in living population of Odisha. The study was conducted in
Hi-Tech Medical College and Hospital, Bhubaneswar during Oct-2013 to Sept.-2015 for two years. Stature
was measured as the crown to heel length of the person in standing position. Percutaneous length of ulna
measurement as the straight distance from most proximal point of olecranon process to the most distal point
of ulnar tuberosity with forearm fixed to 900angle. The finding were studied for establishing the co-relation
of percutaneous ulnar length to that of the body height and a suitable mathematical formula established to
estimate the body height. The estimated heights so found in both sexes are accepted within a range of error
and are in very close approximation with each other.
