...is the title of the study that Athens BJR is conducting with the cooperation of U.S. Army Research & Engineering Center and Cambridge University Hospitals NHS foundation Trust, with aim to end all concerns about body proportions after cosmetic limb lengthening.
The study will calculate the normal range of ratios between the lengths of upper limbs, lower limbs, thighs, shins, span and stature in a sample population of more 5900 healthy men and women , in order to answer the following question:
“For a given person, which part of the limb (femur or tibia) should be lengthened and by how much, in order to keep the body proportions of the patient after the lengthening as close as possible to the normal range of human body proportions?”
The first outcomes will be available in two months. Data will be presented in international scientific fora and will be published in scientific journals.
