3D Body Scanning Method for Close- Fitting Garments in Sport and Medical Applications



School of Fashion and, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia


Close-fitting pressure garments and compression therapy are widely used these days for both sport and medical applications. The degree of pressure produced by a close-fitting compression garment is determined by a complex interrelation between the following principle factors: the construction and fit of the garment, structure and physical properties of its materials, the size and shape of the part of the body to which it is applied and the nature of the sporting or everyday activity undertaken. The negative fit of such garments is of the utmost importance to ensure the correct amount of pressure is generated by them. This research addresses the Development of a Lower Body Measurement Method as applicable to close-fitting garments for sport and medical applications. [TC]2 NX-16 3-Dimensional Body Scanner is used for scanning and generation of the true to scale body model with modifications to the Measurement Extraction Profile made to facilitate the body measurement at points of critical importance for the required application. Customised measurements are then extracted and used for the evaluation of the garment performance or garment engineering. The developed method is validated on a representative sample of human subjects both male and female.
