S. G. Sharath and Mishra, B. N., “Pramana of Jangha and Its Relation with the Height of Healthy Individual”, International Ayurvedic Medical Journal (IAMJ), vol. 1, no. 5, 2013.[Abstract]

Pramana (Anthropometry) defines the concept of measurement of various biological entities. It bears an ample importance in medical applied science. Jangha (tibial length) is
described vividly in various classics as the region between Gulpha (ankle joint) and Janu Sandhi (Knee joint). The average measurement is noted as eighteen anguli (finger breadth) in length and circumference is of sixteen anguli (finger breadth). Based on this regional description, it clearly demarcates the presence and importance of two long bones as tibia and fibula, which are responsible for individualizing the height of a person. Both the lengths of the bones are reciprocally related to the height of the person. In modern literature Pramana Shareera is described under the headings anthropology, anthropometry, and stature which are useful in assessing height, age, race, and nationality. In fact, Pramana Shareera in view of Ayurveda deals with Ayu (longevity), Bala (strength), Ojas (immunity), Shareera (body). In classics, the relationship between length of Jangha (tibial length) and height of the person is not vividly described, though this bears an ample of importance in various pathologies. Hence an effort is initiated to identify the Pramana of Jangha (tibial length) & its relation with the height of the healthy individual.
