The aim of this study was to build a measuring device for assessment of anthropometric values of the thorax and development of a computer program for lung function prediction, based on these measurements. The design of the measuring device takes into consideration all the ergonomic particularities of a human subject, as well as paralyzed humans. This design assures equal measuring condition and sfficiently great measuring precision on diverse persons. The study was caried out on 34 healthy non-smokers. All persons reside in the Alpine region of Slovenia. They live in normal circumstances and have been fairly physically active. The lung function was measured by traditional spirometry and plethysmography. The computer program CSR (computer simulation of respiration) was based on a mathematical model with 24 measured input variables and 9 lung function output parameters. The sitting height (SH), height (H), ann span (AS) and other measurements of the thorax were used to predict lungfunction according to age (A) and sexs. The results were comparable to the values obtained according to CECA standards. The reliability (as measured by decreased SD) increases with the number of predictor variables included in the regression equations. Anthropometric measurements of the thorax (with AMC) may have the potential to more accurately predict lungfunction than the standard equations across ethnic groups. This measuring device procedure and computer program could also be used for lung function prediction in patients when the usual anthropometric data (such as height) cannot be measured with acceptable precision (paralyzed subjects).
