September 28, 2010 § Leave a comment
In order to examine the social contexts around dancers who experience pain and injuries, researchers from London College of Fashion used a 3D body scanner along with interviews. The project, Pain and Injury in a Cultural Context, Dancers’ Embodied Understanding and Visual Mapping asked 200 subjects to map current and past pain and injury sites onto the their own body scan. The same technology is being used at Hull University to measure the changing size of Britain’s children.
