Abstract
In this study we compare somatic parameters of preschool-age children. The research was carried out in preschool facilities in the Sabinov district, Slovakia, in four age categories from 3 to 6 years. Anthropometric measurement involves the evaluation of 16 anthropometric parameters. We performed the following anthropometric measurements: Sitting height (M23), Arm span (M17), Upper limb length (M54), Lower limb length (M53), Biacromial breadth (M35), Transverse chest diameter (M36:), Bispinal breadth (M41), Maximum head length (M1b), Maximum head breadth (M3), Breadth of the face (M6), Morphological height of the face (M18), Hand length (M49), Hand width (M52), Forearm length (M48), Foot length (M58) and Foot width (M59). The results confirmed changes in parameters depending on age and gender. In the results, higher average values were recorded in boys than in girls in almost all measured parameters, and even younger boys demonstrated higher values than older girls.
