Anthropometry is the measurement of the size and proportions of the human body. Many anthropometric measurements are possible, including height, weight, perimeter, length, width, volume surface area structure and composition.

However, the need for anthropometric information and the type of data required varies greatly from one application to another. (medicine, orthosis, retail, shoes, ergonomics, industrial design etc.)

Given that the number of measurements and techniques can be unlimited, general and specific standardization is required for each application in order to compare measurements.

The measurements are defined by 3 planes and 3 axes and are specified internationally as follows:

  • Sagittal (front-back) plane
  • Coronal (anterior) plane
  • Transverse plane
  • Lateral (front) axis
  • Longitudinal axis
  • Sagittal (front-back axis)

When tell of ideal body sizes, firstly, the measures recommended by experts in terms of health should be taken as basis.

  • 45 + 2.3 * (in height / inch – 60) to determine ideal body size for women
  • 50.5 + 2.3 * (ideal length / inch – 60) for ideal body sizes in men

These formulas give an idea about the ideal weight of the person. In addition to this, the rate of fat in the body is between 13-20% in men and between 15 and 23% in women is ideal for health.

Another ideal body size determination formula is the body mass index.

  • Body mass index = kg (cm) / height (m2)
  • Waist to hip ratio = Waist circumference / Hip circumference
  • Waist to chest ratio = Waist circumference / Chest circumference

According to the result from the body mass index calculation,

  • Under 18 and under ideal weight,
  • Ideal weight between 18 and 24
  • 25 to 29 overweight
  • 30 and above are considered obese.

Also, if the waist to hip ratio is greater than 0.80 in women and 1.0 in men, the person is at risk. In which regions the fat is collected in the body, it is directly related to the diseases caught. In people with apple-type body, fat accumulates in the upper parts of the body, and in people with pear-type body, fat is collected in the lower parts of the body. The waist circumference, which is 93 cm in men and 81 cm in women, is interpreted by experts as danger signals.

Turkey's most prestigious model contest Miss&Mr Model of Turkey body measurements of the models 2019 finalists was scanned with DigiME.After the shooting, his three-dimensional model was presented to the jury with all the details. Personal body measurements analysis reports were presented to the jury and contributed to the selection of the jury.

Test scans we have done with the Human Resources department in a company which is a leader of energy sector in Turkey has been completed.Walking and steady posture analysis, posture analysis, Y Balance Test and short condition assessment were performed with 143 physicians accompanied by a physiotherapist. As a result of walking and steady state analysis, specially designed insoles were recommended to 86 people. Although it is not necessary for 38 people, personal insoles were recommended. It was also stated that 14 people did not need special insoles, and 5 people were recommended to get a doctor's opinion. As a result of Posture Analysis, it was determined that 42 people should be priority evaluated and treated.It was determined that 28 people should be evaluated as secondary and support should be given.It was determined that 73 people did not need postural intervention. As a result of the Y Balance Test performed to predict the possibility of ankle sprain, 34 people were found to be problem-free, 33 people were low-risk, 14 people were moderate-risk and 1 person was high-risk.

During the camp term, DigiMEwas used on Altay Sports players for their body and posture analysis. The analysis made in the observations of the Coach and Sportive Director checked whether there were any postural disorders in the shoulder, waist, hip and knee joints of the players. The coach's plan was to maximize the physical capacity of the team, the coach stated that they will bring the players to the best level and increase their efficiency much more consciously with continuous special training and continuity of sensitive physical measurements made with DigiME.Altay Athletic Performance Coach, on the other hand, said that they will continue their individual training with the programs prepared after analysis and measurements with DigiME to minimize injuries and which will minimize personal deficiencies. He emphasized that the slightest deviations in the joint angles of footballers are determined thanks to the reports and outputs presented by DigiME's analyzes. For example, according to the report outputs, symmetrical deviations are observed at certain points in the athletes' head, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees and feet. The coach said that their aim is to help the athletes experience less disability throughout the season and even their professional careers and to increase the efficiency of their athletes according to the training programs determined through regular sensitive analyzes by using DigiME.

Pilates instructors at Seam Academy state that pilates is a system that helps strengthen muscles, stretch, correct posture disorders and especially strengthen internal abdominal muscles to protect joints and bones for life. With this awareness the instructors making the measurements and analyzes of the members in pilates training with DigiME.Regular measurement and analysis follow-up of the members of Pilates training is carried out and the difference becomes clear after each training.Participants can realize the changes in detail and easily by looking at the output report with the measurement and analysis of DigiME instead of noticing the differences and the changes in their bodies when looking at them in simple mirror methods or in the mirror.The majority of the members following themselves by measuring with DigiME after each training, and their belief in education increasing as well as their motivation.After pilates training, which is known as a sports activity, the effect of which can be observed in a very short time, in these analyzes and measurements, there was a serious decrease in the fat rates of the members participating in the training and it was observed that their bodies tightened.In every measurement after training, almost half a centimeter decrease and thinning is observed in the tightening areas where the measurement is made.

School principals are responsible with considering the careers of children who are educated in schools, as well as their health and physical future.They are aware of certain posture and spinal disorders caused by inactive life , long sitting periods, increased computer use and wrong bag usage habits. In schools, with DigiME, students' body and posture analyze are regularly conducted. DigiME enables students to provide health checks with high-precision measurements, analyzes and scans fast, practical and without x-ray exposure. Students can closely monitor changes in their bodies with DigiME.According to the analysis made in a school, the data of the physical measurements between the peers of 100 students who were measured and analyzed with DigiME were compared, and among these students, 4 students were diagnosed with early scoliosis and 20 students were diagnosed with posture disorder that may cause serious health problems in the future. The results of the analyzes made with DigiME were presented to their families. The results of the report provide the opportunity to recognize the problems that may arise in the students early and take precautions, also to speed up the treatment processes.

A dietician, who use DigiME, evaluates the detailed analysis outcomes of the patients with the high sensitivity measurements and follows the patients. In this way, she states that their patients are more easily aware of the changes as a result of precise measurements, they have high motivation in their programs and they have become more loyal to the dietician follow-up.She also states that DigiME does not require contact, calibration, hygienic measurements, can take measurements wherever she wants, and that there should be no office or clinic where appointments will be made for the follow-up of patients. In this way she emphasizes that the number of patients followed up by making measurements outside the clinic increases.

Turkey Classical physics champion athletes , followed his body development with DigiME while he was preparing for competitions during the camp period. He followed the length measurements such as neck, chest, waist, hips, r. biceps, waist / hip, l.biceps with advanced reports of DigiME. Taking into account the results of the body analysis, it was possible to observe even the smallest millimetric changes.

For surgery that will take place in the field of aesthetics, plastic surgery, the patient is given a three-dimensional analysis with DigiME before surgery. You can help them keep their motivation at the highest level by sharing the previous analysis report and the post analysis report with your patients as a result of the analysis made to the patient after a successful operation. You can easily follow the recovery process before and after the operation thanks to detailed reports by making analysis in post operative control appointments.With DigiME, you can maximize the success of the operation and the motivation of the patient.

A 4-day camp was organized with 5 child participants in order to detect and treat posture disorders of children. During the camp, special exercises were made for children. Body analysis measurements of children were done with DigiME before and after the camp.After 4 days of camping, changes in the children's body were presented to their families. As a result, 2 of the children who attended the camp were found to have posture disorders and were directed to the physiotherapist.

The results of 2 analyzes made on the same person on two different dates are as follows: Despite being 89 kg on both dates, there are significant changes in body size and composition due to the weight and cardio training performed during this period. There is growth in the chest and biceps, thinning around the waist and hips, as well as a reduction in body fat.Especially in sports and diet processes based on slimming, the metabolism and immune system prevent a person from losing weight for a certain period, generally people tend to quit the process because they think they cannot benefit in this process.On the contrary, as you can see in this period when the body structure has changed the most, DigiME can catch even minor differences.
