BRAGANCA, Sara; AREZES, Pedro; CARVALHO, Miguel  e  ASHDOWN, Susan P.. Current state of the art and enduring issues in anthropometric data collection. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2016, vol.83, n.197, pp.22-30. ISSN 0012-7353.

The study of human body size and shape has been a topic of research for a very long time. In the past, anthropometry used traditional measuring techniques to record the dimensions of the human body and reported variance in body dimensions as a function of mean and standard deviation. Nowadays, the study of human body dimensions can be carried out more efficiently using three-dimensional body scanners, which can provide large amounts of anthropometric data more quickly than traditional techniques can. This paper presents a description of the broad range of issues related to the collection of anthropometric data using three-dimensional body scanners, including the different types of technologies available and their implications, the standard scanning process needed for effective data collection, and the possible sources of measurement errors that might affect the reliability and validity of the data collected.

Palavras-chave : anthropometry; body scanners; errors; reliability.
