A high metabolic rate means that the cells in the tissue will require a high rate of gas exchange as the cells will be producing a high amount of CO2 during energy production. The dense network of capillaries ensure that the cells are adequately provided with oxygen.

The minimum standard is generally 72". Many people prefer to install them higher in order to accomodate taller people. I just measured our shower head height and it is 80". As with any project, be sure to consult your local building codes.

Shower fixtures are generally installed at least 5-6ft from the ground. You can buy shower fixtures with an adjustable height.
