What alternative methods of measurement for height & weight will be used in those who cannot use standard normative measures?

This study will focus on individuals who cannot be measured in a standard way for height & weight. Specification of recumbent and head circumference measurements should be added for young children. The use of alternative systems for children, adolescents, and adults for measurement of height (e.g. ulnar length, arm wingspan, or recumbent height) and measurement of weight that incorporates potential assistive devices and/or limb loss are of critical importance for inclusion of these individuals.
