Wearable Technology

Wearable technology products, such as virtual reality headsets, headphones, ear buds, activity trackers, smart gloves, or smart clothing can only function properly if they precisely fit the user. Anthrotech can provide detailed data on consumer body parts relevant to wearable technology products including the head, wrist, arm and much more. Our extensive database contains hundreds of human dimensions, broken down by critical market demographics, such as race, age and sex. By working with us, companies can ensure they are designing wearable technology products to fit their specifically-targeted customer base. Wearable technology can be costly; making sure these products fit correctly can help enhance the user
experience and ensure customer satisfaction.

Our services that can benefit the wearable technology industry include:
  • 3D modeling, scanning and digitizing
  • Database analysis
  • Fit testing
  • Wear testing
  • Body size surveys

Apparel

Having the right fit is key for apparel companies looking to entice new customers while keeping existing customers coming back to shop time and time again. We have a database that contains hundreds of human dimensions, broken down by key market demographics, such as race, age, sex and vocation. Utilizing this database allows us to help brands tailor sizing and fit for their specific audience’s body shape and size.

In addition, we are able to pinpoint body shape variations between people in different countries or within the U.S. It is essential that apparel designers take these differences into account when planning for import or export sales, or when expanding into new markets. Some body shape and size variations may indicate to a designer that a certain style dress might not sell well in a particular country, for example. We are able to identify those variations.

Our services that can benefit the apparel industry include:
  • Sizing and grading
  • Database analysis
  • Body size surveys

Transportation, Vehicles and Heavy Machinery

Vehicle designers and manufacturers keep comfort and safety at the forefront, and we can help ensure they meet or exceed safety standards with their equipment. Having the right fit for a person inside a vehicle, whether it’s a tractor, tank, police car, humvee or motorcycle, is imperative to occupant safety. We are able to provide services that allow heavy machinery and vehicles to be designed with their occupant in mind, accounting for variations in height, weight and much more. For vehicles and machinery, we provide data about arm length, for example, to ensure that occupants can reach important controls, and that seats are designed to accommodate the full range of occupant sizes and shapes.

Our services that can benefit the transportation and heavy machinery industries include:
  • 3D modeling, scanning and digitizing
  • Database analysis
  • Vehicle occupant packaging validation

Furniture and Workspaces

In order to be efficient and productive, employees should be comfortable in their workspace and have quick access to necessary equipment. We are able to provide services that allow furniture and workspaces to be designed with their users in mind, accounting for variations in height, weight and much more. Our extensive database contains hundreds of human dimensions and their coordinating demographics, such as race, age and sex. Our database is ideal for designing complex workspaces such as police cars, semi-truck cabs, control rooms and more.

We can provide the knowledge needed to help design new furniture or workspaces, or select existing furniture or workspaces that will best suit your personnel. For example, we can pinpoint how much adjustability is needed in an office chair in order for it to accommodate employees’ heights.

Our services that can benefit furniture and workspace designers include:
  • Database analysis
  • Office furniture fit testing

Industrial Product Design 

The best industrial product designers know there is no such thing as one size fits all. Whether it is design for a virtual reality headset, an activity tracker or infant car seat, designers must take into account the many unique attributes of product users, including body sizes and shapes. Anthrotech offers information that helps industrial product designers understand the wide range of human variability, so designers and manufacturers can best tailor products to their intended targets. Our extensive database contains hundreds of human dimensions, broken down by detailed market demographics relevant to industrial product designers, such as race, age, sex and vocation.

Our services that can benefit industrial product design include:

  • 3D modeling, scanning and digitizing
  • Database analysis
  • Fit testing

Consumer Products

Consumers come in all shapes and sizes, and we know all about them. Consumer product designers must develop products that fit the bodies of their target audiences. There are differences – some small and some substantial – between people in different countries, for example. It is vital that designers take these differences into account when planning for import or export sales or when expanding into new markets.

Our services can help improve existing consumer products or assist in the development of new products. From backpacks to helmets to leaf blowers or the most accurate bobbleheads on the market, we can help you size products that sell. And thanks to an impeccable fit, fewer returns can be expected.

Our services that can benefit consumer product design include:
  • 3D modeling, scanning and digitizing 
  • Database analysis
  • Fit testing
  • Wear testing 
  • Body size surveys
