[TC]² 3D Body Scanning reaches 55 universities

Jul '11
With summer 2011 deployments, Textile/Clothing Technology Corp [TC]² 3D body scanning will now be part of fifty-five different educational programs worldwide. The most recent new members in this rapidly growing club are Missouri State and Baylor Universities, and Buffalo State College.

See what key educators and researchers from these institutions have to say about their plans to utilize scanning technology.

Carolyn Mayer, Missouri State: “The NX-16 3D body scanning system will be purchased to conduct research on fit and evaluation of clothing and to research perception of ideal body image and its effect on clothing selection in today's market. It will also be used to fit models for original designs in the Missouri State Fashion program.

The purchase of the body scanning system will allow the FID Department and Missouri State University to conduct multiple research studies which will result in presentations and publications. This not only benefits the professors, it will be used in coursework to demonstrate to the students the power and benefits of scholarly work. Students will be able to see how the body scanning system works and to learn first-hand about research design and conducting research studies. There are plans to work collaboratively across disciplines and to work collaboratively with other universities across the globe. Students will be allowed to learn how to operate the body scanning system in a limited fashion.

In summary, the body scanning system will be beneficial to the professors conducting the research, students that participate in the studies, and to the university with collaborative research studies across disciplines, with multiple universities, and in peer-reviewed presentations and juried publications.”

Rinn Cloud, Baylor University: “I recently moved to Baylor University where I will continue my long history of research in the barrier and comfort properties of functional clothing. My current focus is on medical apparel and particularly the improvement of surgical and isolation gowns. These gowns play a key role in infection control, so their performance is critical to the protection of medical personnel, patients and communities.

“Baylor University is supporting this research effort by developing a laboratory suite which, in addition to the [TC]² body scanner, will include a variable temperature/humidity environmental chamber for conducting wear tests and cutting edge equipment for measuring barrier effectiveness. The body scanner will allow us to determine the relationships between gown size/design and body size/shape and how those relationships affect thermal comfort and ease of mobility. It is well documented that compliance with protective apparel is hampered by products that are uncomfortable or interfere with task performance. We selected the [TC]² body scanner to be part of this very important work due to its ease of use, the relevant functionality of the software for our purposes, value for cost and the excellent technical support that [TC]² staff provide.”
