What is the perfect clothing?
Posture Scan records the surface of the body. Measures are most accurate when wearing tight fitting cotton clothing, underwear, bare skin or tight fitting non-reflective training clothing.
To avoid disappointment and bad scanning data, we advise providers to inform the end users of the clothing requirements well ahead of time.
How to prepare clothing for a scan?
Baggy clothing (e.g., jacket, loose trousers/basketball shorts
Reflective and loose jewellery
Silver lined socks
Occasionally, very dark hair or hair with gel will be rejected by the sensor.
Examples of clothing recorded in scans
For accurate measures, the sensor needs to see the true outline of the body. Clothing made from unsuitable material for IR scans will be detected by the intelligent software just prior to starting the recording. After the registration process the person is asked to stand in the green box, and the clothing is analysed for suitability. If the system agrees that the signal is good, then the scan process will begin. If the signal is poor, then the person will need to remove the item of clothing that is highlighted in red on the screen, change clothes or abandon the scan.
Poor data into the system means poor information out of the system, and Qinematic believes in good data only - so we are quite strict about the signal quality.
