Abstract

Postural status and anthropometric characteristics were researched on a sample of 200 female examinees of 20 years of age (+/- 6 months) that are attending the Faculty of Economy in Subotica. For estimating the postural status modified method of Napoleon Wolanski (Radisavljevic, 2001) was used, with which the information about the state of spine, chest, lower extremities and feet were gained. Anthropometric characteristics were estimated on the basis of battery of anthropometric variables, such as: body height, body mass, arm length, length of the left and right leg. Postural disruptions representation display is performed with nonparametric statistic procedure-frequencies, and then with comparative analysis of some anthropometric characteristics with postural disruptions. Results obtained refer to significant postural disruptions at this age, of which the most common ones are: scoliotic malposture (72%), lordotic malposture (58%), pes planus (44%) and straight back (42%).
