This is another classic contribution by Braune and Fischer to the field of biomechanics. The pendulum method was employed to ascertain ac- curately the moments and radii of inertia of the human body and its different parts about all axes - transverse, oblique or longitudinal. This elegant method is described in detail, together with the results. Relations were found between the centres of inertia on one hand and the lengths and diameters of the body segments on the other. These data were originally prepared for the authors' later work, The Human Gait, to determine the forces exerted on and by the parts of the body during walking. Such work is the basis for solving the mechanical prob- lems related to any movement of the human body: thus, the original results presented here continue to be of im- mense value to current research and practice.
