Height and weight in the participants were measured with a stadiometer
1 cm with a portable stadiometer
(Seca[R] 213, Hamburg, Germany).
Stature (height) was measured by using a stadiometer
The SH was obtained adapting a removable box (60 cm) to the stadiometer
, where the child was sat with the trunk erect and the head in the Frankfurt plane.
Each fieldworker was equipped with a portable electronic scale and a standard weight for calibration purposes (Precision Health Scale, model UC-321, A&D Company, Japan; maximum capacity 150 kg) as well as a stadiometer
for carrying out the measurements.
Height was measured with the stadiometer
set up against a vertical wall.
Body mass and height were measured using a scale (Ohaus Champ II Model CH 150 R11, Ohaus Corporation, Florhan Park, NJ) and standardized wall mounted stadiometer
(Seca 202 Wall Mounted Stadiometer
, 40 Barn Street, B5 5QB Birmingham, United Kingdom), and Body Mass Index (BMI) was calculated (Pescatello et al.
0 kg in standard form, and with minimal clothing, height of the subjects were measured by using of stadiometer
with accuracy of 1.
Height and weight were recorded by using a standard stadiometer
and weighing scale in the Physiology laboratory.
Weight and height were measured with a stadiometer
, with the children's shoes off.
Maximum height was measured using a Charder HM200PW stadiometer
to the nearest 0.
1 cm using a stadiometer
(model 31, Filizola) after a voluntary deep inspiration.
