The aim of this study was to determine the direction and extent of changes in the body structure and dimensions of selected boys and girls age groups. Anthropometric measurements of about 50 girls and 40 boys at the age of 10-12 attending primary schools in Lodz were performed. The measurements were carried out using an Anthroscan 3D VITUS Smart XXL scanner, which is in the possession of the Textile Research Institute. Within this study the average values of body size were determined for each group of the persons tested. A comparison of selected anthropometric characteristics of girls and boys with the results obtained in previous years was made. Based on the figure images and longitudinal sections, the assessment of figures was made by means of a visual method, comparing the profiles of girls sectional views obtained from the scanner with the standard of Staffel's typology. The comparative analysis of test results derived from 2010 confirmed the thesis concerning the increase of children body size in relation to anthropometric dimensions made in 1998.
