Anthropometry Research Group Institute of Biomechanics

About Us

The Anthropometry Research Group is a multi-disciplinary team that gathers experts in ergonomics, anthropometry, 3D body scanning technology, computer graphics, artificial vision and statistics.

Our activity started in 1994 with the generation of anthropometric databases for the ergonomic design of workstations, furniture and footwear. The emerging 3D scanning technology around 2000 boosted our activity setting up the Laboratory of Human Shapes. In 2001 we carried out our first anthropometric survey for the footwear industry using a 3D scanner for the feet. From 2010 until now, we have planned several anthropometric surveys with a 3D body scanner covering the populations of adults and children with a large database of more than 11.000 individuals. We have developed advanced methodologies such as shape analysis, fitting assessment and statistics models to exploit these databases in the following sectors: clothing, footwear, automobile, orthotics, electronic goods, furniture and sport equipment.

We are members of ISO/TC 159/SC 3 Anthropometry and biomechanics and CEN/TC 122/WG 1 Anthropometry. This activity supports our work in the standardization and harmonization of databases.

We are members of WEAR, a group of international experts in the application of anthropometric data to ergonomic design.
