Quick Reference

A procedure for estimating the centre of gravity of a whole human body from the centres of gravity and weights of individual body segments in the head, trunk, and limbs. The estimate involves quite complex computations and many measurements, but it hinges on the fact that the sum of the moments of the weight-forces of the separate segments is equal to the moment of their resultant.
