sayhealthy.net – The Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, which occasionally determines the weight at which mortality is lowest among its subscribers, presents this method for determining chassis immensity:

Extend one arm and stop the forearm uphill at a 90 -degree angle.
Keep thumbs straight and switch the inside of the wrist toward the body.
If a caliper is accessible, use it to measure the room between the two prominent bones on either side of the elbow.

Alternatively, locate the digit and index finger of the other hand on these two bones. Measure the room between the thumbs against the ruler or a tape measure. Compare it with the figures below, which roll shoulder measurings for medium-framed women. Appraisals less than those indicate a small chassis; greater measurings express a large frame.
