How to prepare a person for a scan

Posture Scan records the surface of the body. It works best with tight fitting clothing. Cotton underwear, bare skin or tight fitting non-reflective sports clothing is best - so the sensor can see the true outline of the body.

  • Avoid baggy clothes like basketball shorts or oversize shirts, as well as dresses and skirts. A dress will disrupt the natural outline of the body. If undressing is not appropriate, tighten the cloth around the limbs using clips behind the person. Roll up the trousers so that the ankles are fully visible, and clip the trouser cuff behind the leg. A head scarf is OK, as long as it is fixed tight around the scalp and the neck.

  • Make sure the person is not wearing shoes during the scan routine. Shoes can affect the balance, and polished shoes tend to be reflective. Some socks may need to be removed.

  • Remove accessories that are shiny, dangle freely or fill the pockets. These can confuse the sensor into thinking you have extra body parts.

  • Long hair should be put up in a bun behind the head. A ponytail falling across he shoulders or a bun on top of the head will cause false results. ‘Big hair’ can also be confusing, and a cap without a brim may be necessary to conform to the shape of the scalp.

  • Full body tattoos must be covered with tight clothing. Very dense hair can could lead to tracking issues, depending on the light.

  • Some clothes contain synthetic or reflective material, which does not work well with the sensor. Examples include some stretch jeans, reflective fabric in training gear, and Kevlar motorbike trousers. The person will be asked to take off non-scannable items, otherwise the scan will not work.


How you start Posture Scan


What happens after the scan

Upon completion of a Posture Scan, the animated feedback and Summary report are available immediately. The Summary report can be viewed on all software services - Posture Scan, Movement Lab and Note. The Feedback can only be viewed on one occasion after Posture Scan, however it can be replayed in Movement Lab as often as needed. Optional features like Print, Send, Feedback and Surveys can be modified in Settings (press ESC to access the menu bar).

Where to find the 3D scans

All 3D scans in an organisation’s library can be opened with Movement Lab. You need to know the Identifier (eg. email) of the person that was scanned. A scan can be played back as though the client were there in person. The virtual laboratory can be used to give feedback and detailed movement analysis. Electronic reports with objective measures are generated with the click of a button. Movement Lab creates unique opportunities for remote consultations with screen sharing, and big data insights using the export functions.
