Three-dimensional body scanning is used to determine surface anthropometry characteristics such as body volume, segment lengths and girths. Three-dimensional scanning systems use laser, light or infrared technologies to acquire shape and software to allow manual or automatically extracted measures. Body posture during scanning is important to ensure accurate measures can be made from the images. The image vary depending on the configuration, resolution and accuracy of the scanner.
