Many 3D scanners use turntables to scan whole body. All 3D body scanners with turntable do not have the ability to move the body around multiple axes. So they can not able image the body from more angles.
This is a big problem when body areas with deep recesses and protrusions such as the chest, belly and underarms, which are impossible to capture from a single angle.
In addition, it is very difficult for the person rotated on the turntable to remain still. Small movements during scanning will reduce the quality and sensitivity of the 3D model due to the Shading Effect.
Handheld DigiME scan solution can be manually moved around the body in every angle and distances and have fewer size constraints than systems with turntable.
DigiME also able to capture objects near instantaneously, which makes it well-suited for taking human measurements (where the subject is not perfectly still) for ergonomics and medical applications.
