3D Scanning Of Humans

Smarttech Upgrades Human Scanner

Nick Hall | June 10, 2016

Smarttech has upgraded its scan3D line-up in response to requests from the medical and security sectors.
The portable scanner can now digitise the entire human body, which has important applications for doctors, researchers and even law enforcement and immigration officers.
A scanner with medicine in mind
The Polish company created the new scanner specifically for the medical profession and it allows for accurate measurement of body parts, posture, wounds and even deviations in the skin. It uses white light, integrates up to five different units of measurement in the integrated software and it scans in colour too.

Proceedings 19th Triennial Congress of the IEA, Melbourne 9-14 August 2015. [Abstract: Since 2001 we teach students about 3D scanning and 3D printing because of a growing demand in society. This paper will show which methods were explored in the area of evaluating the fit of human-product-interaction at Industrial Design Engineering and how 3D scanning and 3Dprinting did make a difference. Ergonomics plays a big role in this process, however in a different and advanced way than before. In general we still teach a human centred design approach in a one of the largest schools in industrial design engineering in the world. Practitioner Summary: This paper is about the experience of a large school trying to teach ergonomics including 3D scanning and 3D printing as tools.])>
