Hohenstein is launching a new 4D body scanner that will be used in a series of research projects throughout the apparel industry. While 3D ultrasound scanning shows three-dimensional images, 4D ultrasound can update the image continuously, making it a real-time, three-dimensional moving image. Scanning in 4D shows body shape and size of the intended customer and reveals related changes during relevant motions. This advanced visualization shortens or even eliminates prototyping time and costs. 4D scanning shows movement's impact on the garment and vice versa. The objective of Hohenstein's scientists is to develop a standard method to analyze how clothing restricts movement. Range of motion is especially relevant in sportswear and workwear manufacturing.
