Description

In this study, we explore potential use of 3D body scanning technology and half scale form development of active body positions. The ultimate goal is to provide a quick, practical and less costly method of developing and fit testing activewear designs. Although 3D body scanners only capture static body shapes, active postures can be identified and captured statically. This technique has been used to study the change of body dimensions in active poses (Choi & Ashdown, 2010). Achieving data from active positions for a half scale form could provide a useful tool for design and pattern development, fit adjustments and customization opportunities for activewear. Among a variety of possible sports activities, male cyclists were chosen as the subject for this study, as the body motions during cycling provide dynamic poses with repeating patterns.
