The Kinanthropometry Archive Project (KAP) aims to provide a database of all previous research in the field of Kinanthropometry. Published papers and books, teaching material and other related resources will be made available to the international community in order to facilitate expansion of research around the globe. Resources are stored in the J.E. Lindsay Carter Kinanthropometry Clinic and can be searched electronically here.
In scientific fields investigating humans, change over time is often an important factor which can shed light on the findings for the current population. However, keeping track of historical data can be problematic. In the relatively new field of kinanthropometry, we are lucky to have access to the research of some of the earliest experts in the field and are now making them available internationally. It is envisioned that the KAP will continue to grow as people continue to contribute their research and data.
Data from studies of athletes, growth and development and special populations as well as different ethnic groups will be collected in the KAP database. Researchers will be able to study larger population groups from within the database, while individuals will be able to compare their anthropometric profile to a selected reference population.
