How can I accurately measure the height of a person standing?

Height-measuring instruments from seca make measuring easy, fast and precise.

  • The patient stands barefoot (if possible) with his/her back to the wall.
  • With feet together, ensure the heels are touching the wall.
  • The body is erect and centered on the measuring rod.
  • Confirm the corner of the eyes and the top of the ears are level (Frankfurt Line).
  • To measure, the user places the headpiece against the scalp and locks it.
