The Body-ScanFIT System: The Importance of Population's Classification into Morphological Families and of Anthropometric Mannequins in Apparel and Ergonomics

Clothing manufacturing companies are getting more and more interested in understanding how their customers are changing.
SME and big apparel companies have realized how it's important to produce according to actual data highlighting the shape of the body: no more a mere concept of "size", but volume and circumference of customers.
In the last 20 years, due to many reasons such as immigration, economic crisis and a more sedentary life, significant demographic changes have affected people's body shape.
Cad Modelling Ergonomics, with more than 40 years of experience in anthropometry applied to textile - apparel industry and ergonomics, by its 3D body scanning technologies helps identifying such changes in population.
FORMAX, the anthropometric mannequins developed as the natural result of the Theory of the Body Shapes (copyright SIAE of Cad Modelling Ergonomics num.94018), act as the right tool to guarantee the perfect fit, volume, comfort and safety to garments and ergonomic devices as they are built on real average body shapes worldwide.
The paper will focus on the importance for apparel producers to base their collections on real collected anthropometric data of population by the use of Body-ScanFIT system.
