Abstract:
Aim: To study the sexual dimorphism from the dimensions of palm and sole in living and in cadavers.
Material and Method: The present study consists of a cross- sectional sample of 200 male and females and 50 cadavers from western part of Maharashtra above 25 years age. The study was conducted in Karad Tehsil of district Satara in the state of Maharashtra.
Results: female the mean value of right hand length is (16.64 ± 0.838) and left hand length is (16.54 ± 0.806), our findings correlate with Kewal Krishan (2007) study While slightly differ from study of Dr O.P. Jasuja (2004) among the Jat Sikhs and Anitha Oommen, (2005) both the workers sample size compared to present study is less. It may be due to racial and regional differences.
Conclusion: It is concluded that the dimensions of hands and feet can provide good reliability in estimation of stature in forensic examinations. Stature prediction is more accurate and reliable in case of females than in males. It is also observed that a single dimension of hand or foot can estimate stature of a unknown person with a great accuracy and a small.
