IBV to take anthropometric measurements of men in Spain

Nov '13
The Biomechanics Institute of Valencia (IBV) in Spain is set to perform an anthropometric study of Spanish men, through the European project SIZING-SUDOE, in which the measurements are taken in an enclosed cabin with a scanner equipped with optical technology that records 3D morphology of the individual.
 
According to a statement issued by IBV, the project is essential to improve design of clothing as well as bettering online shopping in the country, and having proper measurements would facilitate the production of apparel in appropriate sizes.
 
The project SIZING-SUDOE proposes the creation of a stable network between technology centers and business associations to facilitate the transfer of population anthropometric information to apparel companies so they can develop new products and services to all consumers, making them more competitive.
 
The three countries participating in the European project are Portugal, France and Spain, and in order to provide the Spanish database for anthropometrical studies, the IBV would be taking measurements of 1,700 Spanish men who are above 12 years of age and are living in the country.
 
According to IBV, the textile and apparel sector of Europe is one of the largest industries, and majority of the textile and apparel sector activities are concentrated in South West Europe. 
 
The increasing relocation of production in apparel firms, implementation of systems based on data pattern and body proportions of 1970s, as well as the poor standardization of sizing systems, has led to major consumer complaints regarding the lack of fitting in clothes.
 
The anthropometrical study for the SIZING-SUDOE project in Spain would be conducted in collaboration with the Textile Association of Galicia (ATEXGA), the Spanish Apparel Federation (FEDECON).
