Table 4 Distance results for the legs. Mean, standard deviation and threshold of distance measures for the legs, for our control population. Mah., Eucl., Max., Chi, JD, Mal, KS stand for: Mahalanobis, Euclidian, Maximum, Chi-square, Jeffrey-Divergence, Mallows, Kolmogorov-Smirnov distances respectively. CI stands for confidence interval.
