Clinical Anthropometry includes measuring height, weight, waist circumference, and determining the body-mass index. This process involves collecting precise measurements of various body parameters to assess an individual's physical characteristics and overall health. These measurements can provide valuable information about body composition, nutritional status, and potential health risks. Clinical Anthropometry is commonly used in medical settings to monitor growth and development, evaluate nutritional interventions, and assess the risk of chronic diseases such as obesity and cardiovascular disorders.

These measurements are important in assessing an individual's overall health and can provide valuable information for diagnosing and treating various medical conditions.
