Methods for Measuring the Surface Area of Nude Body
3 Dimension scanning for measuring surface area of nude body is practiced and is compared to the empirical formula method and paste method. The surface area of every body sector is collected by the regional classification standard: ISO9920. The results indicate that the area value collected by 3D scanning is lower than the others. The combination of 3D scanning and matched software is the most efficient method espacially to the trunk and limbs.
