Telmat launches automatic body measurement system

The SYMCAD III 3D Body Scanner is a new hi-tech solution for automatically taking complete or partial measurements of the human body. It is an ideal solution for made-to-measure clothing businesses, for sizing clothes as well as having applications in the fitness and healthcare markets.

The SYMCAD III is unique in the market of scanners using depth sensors as it provides a realistic representation of the human body and makes it possible to visually detect static markers such as stickers and labels. Interactive tools take specific measurements in relation to different body shapes. SYMCAD III automatically analyses body shape and body posture.

´India preferred made-to-measure tailoring for ordering clothing for long. Online shopping and wave of brands invading markets made Bespoke tailoring exclusive to the rich club. Growing self-consciousness and discomfort with tape-based measurement has begun fueling demand for body scanning. Established bespoke shops and upcoming chains are looking at solutions, which can provide exclusive scanning experience while enjoying the most accurate measure without touch´, elaborates Brijesh Kumar, iAdept Executive Director.

iAdept represents Telmat scanner related products across the country. Telmat has developed two different 3D solutions depending on their use: SYMCAD III - C ´Cabin version´ and SYMCAD III ´ T ´Transportable version´. SYMCAD III - C is particularly well suited to taking measurements in stores and can be fitted with an extension to allow customers to undress. This solution works particularly well in the context of supplying professional clothing or uniforms; between 40 to 50 people an hour can be measured.

SYMCAD III - T is extremely portable and can be deployed in less than one hour and weighs less than 80 kg. It can be set up and operated by the client as the solution does not require any specialised knowledge or training. SYMCAD III makes it possible to offer customers made-to-measure, comfortable and elegant garments for the price of off-the-peg garments. User-friendly, self-operating and fun to use, SYMCAD vocally guides customers as soon as they enter the booth. The client is welcomed in a pleasant atmosphere. The measurements are taken in soft lighting. The colour of the client´s underclothes and skin colour in no way affect the measurements.

The new SYMCAD III solution boasts several technical benefits. The solution´s depth sensors use optical triangulation (near-infrared light - NIR) to take the measurements. The solution also employs cutting-edge technology to eliminate electronic and optical interference. This results in an accuracy rate well below 1 per cent. The reconstruction of the human body is realistic with virtually no noise or inaccuracies. The floor space measures 3.3m². Ultra-rapid measurement acquisition time: 1 second for a 10-sensor set-up and 1.8 seconds for a 20-sensor set-up. 3D acquisition can be taken over 360°, because of the position of the sensors.

Measurement limits are: height 2.05 m, depth 0.8 m and width 1m. Over 140 measurements are automatically taken and can be consulted in less than 30 seconds. The measurement position control can be performed on pictograms and/or on real body forms. Over thirty made-to-measure clothing shops in Europe already use the Telmat body measurement system.
