Aim: To determine the foot measurement for stature estimation
Materials and Methods: The current research was done on a sample of 100 healthy adults ranging in age from 18 to 65 years. Stature is the vertical distance between the vertex's highest point and the stadiometer's platform. Each subject's stature was measured using the standing height technique. Foot length is the direct distance from acropodian to pternion. It was measured using a specially constructed tool that looked like a small osteometric board. It was made out of a horizontal rectangular hardwood platform with a fixed metal scale calibrated from 0 to 30 cm to the closest millimetre.
Results: Male adults had an average height of 166.11±6.15 cm, while female adults had an average height of 156.89±7.85 cm. Males had an average RFL of 24.71±1.12 cm, while females had an average RFL of 22.15±1.36 cm. Males had an average LFL of 25.01±1.12 cm, while females had an average LFL of 22.44±1.47 cm. For men, the Pearson correlation coefficients for height, RFL, and LFL were statistically significant, and there was a positive relationship between stature and foot length. Females' height, RFL, and LFL Pearson correlation coefficients were statistically significant, and there was a positive link between stature and foot length.
Conclusion: There was a statistically significant positive association between height and foot length for both sexes in this research. An individual's height is one of many distinguishing features, but it is particularly significant since it is innate.
