Upper limb anthropometry: the value of measurement variance studies.

Abstract

If a test involves subjective evaluation then different observers will record different findings. This is true of upper limb anthropometry. Unless the interobserver measurement variation is quantified then the detection of real, rather than apparent, measurement changes is hindered. This paper uses a new statistical approach to interpret apparent measurement changes in the presence of observer variation.
