A cycling helmet that doesn't fit your head properly or an item of clothing marked 'one size fits all' that doesn't actually fit: we've all been there. Modern 3D measuring techniques can make a big difference here.
Anthropometry, the measurement of the human individual, is age old. It may sound obvious, but it isn't: human anatomy varies enormously. The importance of this variation shouldn't be underestimated, since good measurements are essential for designing ergonomic products like furniture, clothes and prostheses.
