52,000 3D body scans done through Fit3D Proscanner
Mar '16
Apparel fitting expert Fit3D said, more than 52,000 3D body scans and associated anthropometric and ergonomic body measurements have been taken by consumers using the Fit3D Proscanner.

“A Fit3D user takes a scan on a Fit3D Proscanner every five minutes from one of the more than 275 systems located in 17 countries around the world,” a Fit3D press release stated.

“As Fit3D continues to distribute its Proscanners globally, the amount of 3D body scans captured using the Fit3D Proscanner grows at an exponential pace,” the company added.

"A 3D body scan dataset of this size collected throughout the world is unprecedented," said Greg Moore, Fit3D's CEO.

“Since the advent of 3D printing and other 3D manufacturing efficiencies, more and more products that come into contact with the human body are being customised,” he too added.

"As we have the improved ability to print things like human tissue, textile, and soft materials, the body is going to be the holy grail of customised products," Moore further added.

According to Fit3D, the mass customisation movement is already seeing roots in customised clothing from brands like Trumaker, J. Hilburn, and Knot Standard as well as customised orthotic companies like Wiivv.

“Some of these companies are sending tailors to physically measure individuals and others are utilising scanning technology to distribute their services more aggressively,” it noted.

Fit3D sees a use for the 3D body scan data in a multitude of markets associated with making customised products for the consumer.

Fit3D designs and manufacturers 3D body scanning technology, which is distributed to fitness centres, weight loss centres, corporate wellness programs, hospitals and health insurance companies. (AR)
