    We had a wonderful response from our 2022 Lecture series and due to popular demand we are currently planning our 2023 lecture series. 

    For those of you who missed our Lectures or wish to watch them again they can be viewed at:

    Lecture 1: How to create a 3D body avatar: A review of methodologies and potential applications https://youtu.be/9y88eGCrWxI

    Lecture 2: Move4D: Capture and processing of body avatars in motion https://youtu.be/K5HDh8UuNZU 

    Lecture 3: Predicting Fit with Soft Avatars https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-UZobqDw4Q&authuser=0

    WEAR Lecture Series - New Technologies for Anthropometry and Fit

    The WEAR Lecture Series in 2022 will demonstrate how anthropometric data is captured, processed and used and how valuable it is for academic and industrial applications.

    WEAR is planning to combine all of our survey access features into our home page at bodysizeshape.com.

    To help us identify features of WEAR membership that will be useful to you, please click on the link below to give your feedback and suggestions using the WEAR Website Update Survey Google Form.


    If you do not wish to click on this link, the survey questions are also listed at the end of this blog post. Please send an email with your responses to daisy.veitch@gmail.com, or provide your feedback in response to this blog post.

    We look forward to receiving your survey responses by email, in response to this blog post, or through the WEAR Website Update Survey Google Form.

    WEAR Website Update Survey

    WEAR is planning to combine all survey access features into the WEAR website at www.bodysizeshape.com.

    WEAR charges for access to survey data solely for the purpose of maintaining the data, maintaining the WEAR website and distributing the data. Because we want to continue to maintain the data and allow access to people who can't afford a full membership we are considering some data access alternatives and we want to know what you would find useful as a WEAR member.

    WEAR does not yet have a method for allowing users to download 3D scans, so we distribute this data on USB drives which incurs additional costs. Any 3D scans made accessible on the WEAR website would only be samples as part of free access data.

    Please help us to understand what you would find useful as a WEAR member by completing this quick 7 question survey.

    Which types of WEAR memberships would interest you?

    • Premium 800 EUR per year membership with free access to all data, forums, and lectures including 3D scans
    • Full membership for 300 Euro per year with free access to all forums, and lectures and all data except 3D scans
    • Half-price (150 Euro) membership with free access to forums & lectures and access to 3 datasets of my choosing per year (excluding 3D scans) for free
    • Student 50 EUR membership with read-only access to forums, and lectures and access to one dataset for free (excluding 3D scans) and additional data for 20 Euro fee per item
    • Other:

    How would you prefer to download data from WEAR survey data sets?

    • I would like to download all data from a survey to filter and process myself.
    • I would like to filter the dataset and download summary statistics (e.g. means, standard deviations, and percentiles)
    • Other:

    Which of the following would you be interested in as features of WEAR membership?

    • Online forum to share knowledge and tools
    • Lecture series
    • In-person annual meeting
    • On-line annual meeting
    • None of the above
    • Other:

    Some people are creating open source tools for using anthropometric data. Would you be interested in any of the following:

    • Automated tool for importing 3D scans from a survey into Blender and taking standard pose screenshots
    • Automated tool for point picking and aligning 3D scans in Blender to create overlay visualisations
    • Automated tool for importing body landmark data and 3D scans from a survey into Blender and overlaying them
    • Instructions for doing PCA or stepwise discriminant analysis using SPSS
    • Instructions for weighting a sample using SPSS
    • Instructions for creating anthropometric bivariate charts and summary statistics using Excel
    • Instructions for calculating z-scores for an individual using Excel
    • None of the above, not interested in tools
    • Other:

    Please let us know any other features you would find useful as part of WEAR membership.

    Do you consent to WEAR contacting you about your survey responses?

    We invite you to attend our exciting workshop on how to improve and test designs...

    Where: HFES Conference in Seattle USA 

    When: Monday 28th October 2019. 

    Title: "Anthropometry Applied to Wearable Product Design" 

    We think it's going to be a great workshop! Presenters are Kathleen Robinette, Sandra Alemany, Karen Bredenkamp and Daisy Veitch. 

    Link: http://www.hfes2019.org/workshops.html

    About the workshop: Many technology advances have been made since the 2004 publication of the HFES 300 Committee’s "Guidelines for Using Anthropometric Data in Product Design".  For example, we now have 3D printing for rapid prototyping, inexpensive 3D scanning for fit visualization, and virtual or augmented reality for experiencing product concepts.  These advances have enabled the use of anthropometric methods in product development that were previously too time consuming or expensive.  This workshop will present up-to-date best practices and cover the product development process from the first statistical models to the final product using recent examples and success stories from the wearable product and apparel industries.   It will be presented in five parts corresponding to the design loop of the Systems Engineering (SE) Process: 1) introduction to anthropometry, cases, fit and SE, 2) statistics for anthropometry, identification of cases and prototype development, 3) human modeling, CAD and prototyping, 4) fit mapping with hands-on fit assessment, and 5) statistics for cost/benefit analysis and size selection.   Data analysis will be done during the workshop, and an Excel™ data file with 58 anthropometric and demographic variables on 2379 North American subjects will be provided to all attendees.  SPSS™ and Excel™ software will be used in the course and some SPSS code files will be provided in text form for students to use after the workshop.  Attendees will also receive an electronic copy of the HFES’ guidelines book.  Fit mapping of a glove will be done during the workshop and attendees will be provided with a copy of the fit data as well as the data collection forms used.   Participants will want to bring a laptop computer preferably with Microsoft Office™, particularly Excel™ for the best experience.  Experienced designers, engineers, and human factors professionals will get the most out of the workshop.
