Styku LLC announced the first retail installation of their new StykuScan body scanner that will used to create custom clothing by replacing the traditional process of taking hand-measurements with a measuring tape.

Toronto's IM-Label has installed the new Kinect-driven StykuScan system that will enable quick and accurate body measurement and body shape analysis. IM-Label is the first custom tailor in the world to install and use the system.

“IM-Label is very excited to utilize StykuScan to refine the fit for each and every customer,” said Harry Park, Director at IM-Label.

“We believe that this new technology increases accessibility to custom clothing by eliminating a step that normally requires a lot of skill and is prone to human error. Never before has such a technology been as economical to acquire and easy to use.

"It will allow us to measure accurately in seconds versus minutes and much less intrusively. This gives us one giant leap forward in providing affordable custom-tailored clothing to the masses.”

For IM-Label, Styku's body scanning technology has made one-click body measuring a reality. Inside of the 30 square foot measurement zone, a customer stands with his arms slightly raised, and in a mere 3 seconds, the body is scanned to extract accurate measurements within a quarter of an inch.

This eliminates human error from the measuring process, ensuring consistent measurements and better fitting garments.

"Styku is thrilled that IM-Label has embraced the future of getting a superior fit - and we fully expect our innovative body scanning technology to help them realize their goals.

"Canada has been an important market for us and having our first unit sent to such a progressive client makes us realize that the appetite for game changing technology north of the border is boundless,” said Raj Sareen, CEO/Founder at Styku.

“Body measurements are just the beginning,” said Park. “Combining data acquired from the body scanner with fabric virtualization technologies, IM-Label will be able to show customers what their garments will look like on a person before it is even constructed, thereby enhancing customer experience and satisfaction.”
