Abstract

Ayurveda in its principle has given importance to individualistic approach rather than generalize. Application of this examination can be clearly seem like even though two patients suffering from   same  disease,  the treatment  modality  may change  depending   upon  the   results of Dashvidha  Pariksha. Prakruti and Pramana both used in Dashvidha  Pariksha. Both  determine  the  health of  the individual and Bala (strength) of Rogi (Patient). Ayurveda  followed  Swa-angula Pramana as the unit  of  measurement  for  measuring  the  different  parts  of  the  body  which  is prime step  assessing patient before treatment. Sushruta and Charaka  had  stated  different Angula Pramana of each Pratyanga  (body parts). Specificity is the characteristic  property  of  Swa-angula Pramana. This can be applicable in present era for example artificial limbs. A scientific research includes collection, compilation, analysis and  lastly scrutiny of  entire findings to arrive at a conclusion. Study of Pramana and its relation with Prakruti was conducted in 1000 volunteers using Prakruti Parkishan proforma  with  an  objective  of  evaluation  of Anguli Pramana in various Prakriti. It was observed co-relating Pramana in each Prakruti and Granthokta Pramana that there is no vast difference in  measurement of head, upper  limb and lower limb. The observational study shows closer relation of features with classical texts.
