International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings
Iowa State University Conferences and Symposia

The first national meeting of textile and clothing professors took place in Madison, Wisconsin in June 1959. With a mission to advance excellence in education, scholarship and innovation, and their global applications, the International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) is a professional and educational association of scholars, educators, and students in the textile, apparel, and merchandising disciplines in higher education.

This site provides free, public access to the ITAA annual conference proceedings beginning in 2015. Previous proceedings can be found by following the "Additional ITAA Proceedings" link on the left sidebar of this page.

Abstract

This research presents the results of a study comparing the hardware and software of four commercially available brands of three-dimensional (3D) body scanners. Fifty-five men and women over age 18 had baseline anthropometric measurements taken by flexible tape measure, air displacement plethysmography (ADP), and dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Participants then were received a full body scan in each of the four comparative scanner systems. Data were evaluated through linear regression and Bland-Altman analyses for each 3D optical system, qualitative data regarding participant ease of use and comfort with each scanning system are presented. Results indicate design of hardware and software influence comfort during scanning process, accuracy of data collected, and its usefulness for apparel development.
