Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Height of Body in different positions

Postby morrisleigh » Mon Jan 17, 2011 9:45 pm

I was wondering if it is possible to calculate the sitting height of a person that is 262.13 cms Tall, (when they are sitting down on the ground). And what there estimated eye level height would be...
And if a person is 262.13 cms Tall, how long would their legs be (from ground to hip)
And what their torso and head would measure
If it helps this person weighs 250kilograms.
Any estimates are welcome...

As everyone isn't built the same, I doubt there are any definitive ratios to give an accurate answer.
