Abstract Ergonomic measurement is central to product design and development; especially for body worn products and clothing. However, there is a large variation in measurement definitions, complicated by new body scanning technology that captures measurements in a posture different to traditional manual methods. Investigations of hip measurement definitions in current clothing measurement practices supports analysis of the effect of scan posture and hip measurement definition on the… 
3D Body Scanning has Suitable Reliability: An Anthropometric Investigation for Garment Construction
3D Body Scanning provides access to a greater breadth and depth of anthropometric data for industry applications and scientific research than at any other point in history. However, while the
Not All Body Scanning Measurements are Valid: Perspectives from Pattern Practice
To assume all body scanning measurements are valid for apparel product development is wrong. While human measurement forms the basis for product development and body scanning represents a significant
Three-Dimensional Body Scanning in Sustainable Product Development: An Exploration of the Use of Body Scanning in the Production and Consumption of Female Apparel
It is reasoned that only when these key limitations are addressed can 3D body scanning help facilitate sustainable practice and provide retailers with enough information to develop well-fitted apparel.
Assessing the female figure identification technique’s reliability as a body shape classification system
How current body definitions are too unspecific and exclude relevant body morphology for garment construction is demonstrated and alternative anthropometrics and demographics for inclusion in a more advanced model is suggested.

3D Body Scanning provides access to a greater breadth and depth of anthropometric data for industry applications and scientific research than at any other point in history. However, while the
Human measurement and product development for high-performance apparel
Abstract Human measurement remains the basis for developing body worn products and currently there have been significant developments in the techniques and technology used to analyze the body and
3D Body Scanners' Ability to Improve the Cutting of Patterns for Traditional Saudi Garment to Assimilate Them into Modern-Day Clothing
3D body scanning and CAD tools offer opportunities to develop traditional pattern cutting methods, that better contextualise the body, whilst retaining the traditional appearance. The costumes that
Study Regarding the Kinematic 3D Human-Body Model Intended for Simulation of Personalized Clothes for a Sitting Posture
The study shows that average increases in waist, hip, thigh, and knee circumferences should be included in the process of basic clothing-pattern designs for SIT as minimal ease allowances, to achieve realistic volumes for kinematic 3D body models in SIT.

The Clone Block TM offers a critical assessment of body shape for automated garment fit, improved virtual size selection, more realistic virtual fittings, the optimizing of twin avatars to clones, and mass garment customization.
Automated body volume acquisitions from 3D structured-light scanning
Overall, the bespoke software developed in this study can complete the post-processing tasks without any technical expertise, and the obtained whole-body volumes and segmental volumes can achieve good accuracy for some applications in health and medicine.


The True Height of the Waist: Explorations of Automated Body Scanner Waist Definitions of the TC2 Scanner
The waist is considered as an important measurement point for clothing and represents part of a control section from which lower body garments hang and garments are often required to fit. However,
3D body scan analysis of dimensional change in lower body measurements for active body positions
In this study we use 3D scans to measure and analyze lower body measurement change for various active body positions, comparing a standing posture, a 120° knee bend posture, a one pace stepping
Body scanning of dynamic posture
Purpose – Aims to check the validity of measurements of dynamic postures recorded by a body scanner.Design/methodology/approach – Measurements between various anatomical landmarks have been taken
Comparison of 3-D Body Scan Data to Quantify Upper-Body Postural Variation in Older and Younger Women
As women age, changes occur in their posture and bilateral symmetry that affect the fit of clothing. These changes have been documented in many studies. Anthropometric measures made in previous
Body scanning: The effects of subject respiration and foot positioning on the data integrity of scanned measurements
This study certainly indicates that respiration and foot placement has a significant effect on body scan data, and it was established that the scan data rendered by the software does have precision, but lacks accuracy when compared against physical measurements.
Body measurements of Chinese males in dynamic postures and application.
A method to measure the human body in the static state and in 17 dynamic postures is proposed, so as to understand dimensional changes of different body parts during dynamic movements.
Variation in Defining the Hip Circumference for Clothing Applications
Abstract: This white paper provides an overview of the variation in definitions for describing the hip and the position from which to take the hip for clothing related applications. Definitions were
Body scanning as a new anthropometric measurement tool for health‐risk assessment
Study explored the accuracy of body measurements gathered from trained observers employing a tape measure compared with those generated by the 3D body scanner, indicating that utilization of the body scanner as an anthropometric measurement tool for the assessment of health risk has tremendous benefits.
Analysis of Body Measurement Systems for Apparel
Many methods have been developed to measure the body in an effort to capture its dimensions for clothing. Measuring the human body has been important in developing garments tofit the body, and
Size and fit: Procedures in undertaking a survey of body measurements
This paper (which is the first of three) explains how to undertake an anthropometric survey, first, by reviewing previous surveys and size charts to select which measurements to take and the
