Abstract

This study aimed to develop a new method for better measuring the dynamic human body and analyzing the body dimension variations during motions. Motion capture system, camera combined with 3D body scanner were used to obtain skeleton movement data, photos and body measurement. In the experiment, participants were scanned performing standard standing pose and dynamic postures. At the same time, movements were recorded with motion capture. By analyzing the data derived from both standard and dynamic poses, the measurement variations can be explored. Also, simulated human model generated from motion capture data and photos were examined by mapping with the body scanning data. Results and findings can be beneficial to various areas concerning ergonomics such as apparel, medical rehabilitation, biomechanics, game/film making etc.
