The balancing act between freedom of movement, functionality and fashion orientated fit for different target groups poses new complex challenges on the manufacturers of work and sportswear during development and sales.
Anthropometric data is used for clothing design, PPE, workspaces and human-machine interfaces. Two different sizing systems are used for this: size charts and ergonomic standards. Size charts are the base for the clothing industry, although these cannot cover the functional requirements for workwear and protective clothing. The variability of body measurements during movement is partially noted in the Ergonomic-standard, but these are nonrelated to the clothing sizes. A standard that correlates the sizes with the functional movement of the body while working was not available until now.
The variability of body measurements was investigated in the research project "functional measurements". In this process the focus was laid on the 3D-analysis of body measurements of women and men in different postures through the 3D-BodyScanner. The precise results of this are: 93 3D-Scans of men and women in different postures, description of bodily variance while in motion, size charts "functional measurements" for men and women, as well as recommendations for optimized allocation of individual customer measurements for standard sizes. The project results can be used for pattern development and fit optimization for clothing with a high ergonomic comfort.
