Introduction: The identification of body parts is essential of biological profiling. Present study aims to use hand and feet measurements to estimate stature based on sex.

Material and Methods: The study included 140 adults with 70 male and 70 female from central India. The age group was between 18 to 25 years. Length and breadth of both hands and feet were taken into account.. A descriptive analysis was done and regression equations were derived to estimate the stature for each gender.

Results: The correlation coefficient was significantly positive between measurements and stature in both sexes. The stature prediction accuracy ranged from ±3.49 - ±4.25 in males and ±0.86 – ±1.37 in females.
