SizeBR - The Brazilian Study on Anthropometric



SENAI CETIQT, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


In order to standardize and guide the clothing manufacturers in developing products to meet the textile and apparel chain, hence the construction of the gradations and modeling clothing in relation to standards bodies, Senai CETIQT, in 2006, began, still incipient, the mapping of different configurations of bodies Brazilians. Over those seven years, as the methodology was outlined and matured, the study of Senai CETIQT passed through several stages. First acquired tools for manual measurement and conducted a feasibility study with a small sample group comprised of students and staff of the institution itself. As the results were satisfactory, a new phase began with the acquisition of a body scanner and specialized services standardization of uniforms of the armed forces and auxiliaries. With the implemented methodology, it was possible a major step toward the anthropometric characteristics of the standard body of Brazilian design SizeBR. In 2010 Senai CETIQT listed the main consumption centers spread across five main regions: South, Southeast, Cento West, North and Northeast to start the first scientific study conducted by anthropometric scanning technology at the national level in order to behold the great dimensions of Brazil. Seeking greater breadth of research, the team of Innovation Management, Studies and Research through the line and Consumption Behavior of Senai CETIQT developed a questionnaire about consumption habits of Brazilians to be applied in conjunction with measurements to be obtained in these regions. For each consumption center, depending on the served population, we applied the statistical theory of sampling to define the number of Brazilians to be measured (the international standard ISO 15535:2012). So a specialized team consisting of technicians in the design, engineering, anthropology, social sciences, electronics and ergonomics was trained to go into the field and perform automatic measurements manuals and treat the images obtained by body scanners. Currently the project team SizeBR dedicated to the completion of the measurements and the statistical treatment of the data and has the forecast finalization of the national stage for males and females between 18 and 65 years and consequently Senai CETIQT. Continuing expansion SizeBR seeking to meet the other segments, Senai CETIQT is acquiring two more body scanners, one for feet and hands and another for head, in this way to meet with that segment of the field of Fashion.
