||Isometric muscle strength and anthropometric characteristics of a Chinese sample
||July 2005, Vol.35, No.7, p.674-679. Illus. 8 ref.
||This study examined data on isometric muscle strength and anthropometric dimensions from a sample of 146 male and 47 female Chinese subjects. These basic data are important for workplace, task and equipment design. Five measures of muscle strength were recorded: left and right hand grip, arm lift, shoulder lift and torso pull strengths. The mean female strengths were about 50% lower than the male values. There were several significant positive correlations between anthropometric measures and isometric strength. Comparisons between the results of this study and those from published studies in China and the United States are provided.
