Kinanthropometry is defined as the study of human size, body shape, body proportion, body composition, maturation, and gross function, in order to understand growth, exercise, performance, and nutrition.
This Special Issue is dedicated to covering the areas related to sports and exercise sciences and therapy and health professionals. We are interested in research and review work carried out with people of different levels of physical condition from untrained to highly trained individuals. Different methodological and theoretical approaches are also supported. This Special Issue is open to the topic of “Kinanthropometry: The Link between Anthropometry and Function”. The keywords listed below provide an outline of some of the possible areas of interest.
