Date: October 2019. Source: 3DBODY.TECH 2019 – 10th International Conference and Exhibition on 3D Body Scanning and Processing Technologies, Lugano, Switzerland. Abstract: There are important limitations in the current methodological stimuli being used in perceptual body image research among men, including a reliance on unrealistic images, a lack of biometric validity, and little consideration of…

Evaluation of lumbar motion with fabric strain sensors: A pilot study.

Date: January 2019. Source: International Journal of Industrial Ergonomics, Volume 69, Pages 194-199. Highlights: • Flexible strain-sensors provides a potential solution for measuring lumbar motion. • The sensor-predicted lumbar angles showed good agreement to the measured body angles. • Sensor signals may have varied between subjects due to anthropometry. • Future work is needed to…

A New Method for Finding the Shoulder Complex Rotation Centre Using 3D Body Scanning. SG Rozevink, I Kingma, D Spies et al.

Date: October 2018. Source: 9th 3DBODY.TECH Conference and Expo. October 16-17, 2018. Lugano, Switzerland, USA. Presenter: SG Rozevink Session: Technical Session 1: Medical Applications Abstract: To avoid radiation exposure to the body, the rotation centre of the shoulder complex is often assessed using the Optotrak motion capture system instead of X-ray imaging. Recently, 3D body…

Watch Willie Geist get a 3dMD model of himself at the Under Armour factory.

During his tour of Under Armour’s factory with CEO Kevin Plank, Sunday TODAY’s Willie Geist gets a 3D body model of himself created with the 3dMD technology the company uses to make custom clothes for athletes.

A Parametric Model of Shoulder Articulation for Virtual Assessment of Space Suit Fit. KH KIM, KS YOUNG, Y BERNAL, A BOPPANA, LQ VU, EA BENSON, S JARVIS, SL RAJULU.

Date: December 2016 Source: 2016 International Conference on 3D Body Scanning, Lugano, Switzerland. Abstract: Suboptimal suit fit is a known risk factor for crew member shoulder injury. Suit fit assessment is however prohibitively time consuming and cannot be generalized across wide variations of body shapes and poses. In this work, we have developed a new…

Academics hook up with lingerie company to improve radiotherapy treatment.

As seen on the Sheffield Hallam website… Academics at Sheffield Hallam University are working with a lingerie company and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to provide a new specially designed bra for some women undergoing breast radiotherapy, which they hope will improve accuracy of treatment and also help patients maintain dignity during radiotherapy. Working with…

NEW YORK — October 5, 2016 — Body Labs, provider of the world’s most advanced technology for analyzing the human body’s shape, pose and motion, announced today a partnership with 3dMD, the world’s leading provider of high-precision static-3D and temporal-3D (marker-less 4D) systems for seamlessly capturing the human body’s anatomical shape, pose, and motion, to…

Appealing Female Avatars from 3D Body Scans: Perceptual Effects of Stylization. R Fleming, BJ Mohler, J Romero, MJ Black, M Breidt.

Date: March 2016. Source: Semantic Scholar.org. Abstract: Advances in 3D scanning technology allow us to create realistic virtual avatars from full body 3D scan data. However, negative reactions to some realistic computer generated humans suggest that this approach might not always provide the most appealing results. Using styles derived from existing popular character designs, we…

Delayed intracranial hypertension after surgery for nonsyndromic craniosynostosis. S Lam, KM Wagner, E Middlebrook, TG. Luerssen.
