Abstract

Values of the length growth of the human radius as gained at the Fels Research Institute for the Study of Human Development and published by Gindhart (1976) are taken into consideration for a mathematical representation. On the basis of the author's formula for the human height development computations were carried out after ascertaining the allometric relation with the height/age tables after Maaser (1974) for lack of more adequate data. For the first 10.5 years a simple power function will suffice being afterwards incorporated into the more intricate formula (Sager 1981) and complemented by an additional growth spurt term. Results may be classified as excellent for the male and good for the female.
