Join us at our highly practical two-day workshop hosted by academic experts from Sheffield Hallam’s AWRC.

Do you measure the human body within your role? Or do you use body measurements in your work? Are you interested in developing your body measuring understanding and skillset?

Join us at our 2-day workshop on 21st and 22nd March to hear from Sheffield Hallam’s academic experts from the Advanced Human Body Measurement Programme at the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre (AWRC).

This workshop will explore how body measurement techniques can be improved, both manually and digitally, and will offer practitioners in the ergonomics and design field the opportunity to discover how to improve the accuracy and repeatability of body measurement and thereby the service provided.

  • Surface body measures (anthropometrics) through manual and digital methods.
  • Body composition through manual and digital methods.
  • Data processing and management.
  • Data analysis, interpretation, visualisation and application.
  • One-to-one review of current body measurement procedures and challenges.
