Mean lateral tracings of a statistically valid sample of body-build photographs show lateral posture positions which must be considered characteristic of each body type. The term "orthogram" is suggested to indicate the manner of arriving at these posture patterns. These are characteristically dynamic, correlating well with the work of Ackerblom, Howorth, Duchenne, Sullivan, and Kelton and Wright.This study establishes the determination of posture on a scientifically sound basis, and it should be given priority when defining the normal posture of young, adult, white males, standing at ease. This should be of basic interest to the orthopaedic surgeon.
