3D BODY SCANNING and FITNESS – Lugano Conference

Imao sa čast da prisustvujem i budem deo organizacije najprestižnije 3D Body Scanning Konferencije, koja se održala prošlog meseca u Švajcarskoj u gradu Luganu, u organizaciji kompanije Hometrica Consulting. Renomirane firme iz svih delova sveta kao i razni Univerziteti imali su priliku da predstave svoje projekte i inovacije na polju 3D Body Scanning Tehnologija. Primena ovih tehnologija je posebno zastupljena u medicini, plastičnoj hirurgiji, modi, tekstilnoj industriji, filmu… ali za mene i za ovaj portal najbitnijoj oblasti Fitnesu, Zdravlju i Sportu. Ukratko ćemo u ovom tekstu predstaviti najinteresantnije inovacije i budućnost 3d Body Skenera.

I had the honor to attend and be a part of organization one of the prestigious 3D Body Scanning Conference, which was held last month in Switzerland in Lugano, organized by Hometrica Consulting. Renowned companies from all over the world as well as various universities had the opportunity to present their projects and innovations in the field of 3D Body Scanning Technology. The application of these technologies is particularly represented in medicine, plastic surgery, fashion, textiles, film … but for me and for this portal the most important field is Fitness, Health and Sports. We briefly in this paper to present the most interesting innovations and the future of 3D Body Scanner.

Između ostalih, izdvojila su se predavanja (the lecture is): 

  • Adapted Performance Sportswear – FTI Lab, University College Ghent, Ghent, Belgium 
  • Towards Developing a Method for Identifying Static Compression Levels of Seamless Sports Bras using 3D Body Scanning – Adriana C. GOREA, Fatma BAYTAR Iowa State University, Ames (IA), USA 
  • Changes in the Volume and Circumference of the Torso, Leg and Arm after Cycling in the Heat Determined Using 3D Whole Body Scanners –  Department of Human Movement Sciences, Faculty of Behaviour and Movement Sciences, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, MOVE Research Institute Amsterdam, The Netherlands
  • A Parametric Model of Shoulder Articulation for Virtual Assessment of Space Suit Fit –  NASA Johnson Space Center, TX, USA 
  • The Cycle of the Shape Descriptor Suite: When do People Become Overweight? –  Novaptus Systems Inc., Chesapeake VA, USA; 2 The Hague Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Center, Norfolk VA, USA 
  • Analysis of Tight Fit Clothing 3D Construction –  University of Zagreb, Faculty of Textile Technology, Zagreb, Croatia; 2 University of Maribor, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Maribor, Slovenia 

Pored predavanja održala se i praktična prezentacija skenera i njihova primena. Vodeće svetske kompanije kao što su BOTSPOT, SIZESTREAM, CAESAR, STYKU i druge su predstavile i pokazale kako se upotrebljavaju skeneri i koje benefite na ljudski organizam imaju, kroz poboljšanje performansi kod sportista do konstantnih i učestalih praćenja promena u organizmu kod rekreativaca (procenat telesnih masti, količinu vode, obime delova tela, visceralne masti i rizik od srčanih oboljenja, gustina kostiju, telesna težina…). Skeneri mogu na osnovu dobijenih parametara i učestalosti fizičke aktivnosti, da veoma precizno predvide nivo napredka i vreme za koje se mogu ostvariti zadati ciljevi. Veoma precizni rezultati i snimci pomoću mikro kamera mogu pomoći profesionalnim sportistima: kod mišićnog disbalansa, kod oporavka, kod preciznog izvođenja zadatog pokreta i unapređenja tehnike izvođenja.

In addition to lectures took place and practical presentation scanners and their applications. Leading global companies such as BOTSPOT, SIZESTREAM, CAESAR, INTERFACE and others are presented and shown how to use scanners and benefits on the human body they have, by improving the performance of athletes to constant and frequent monitoring of changes in the organism with the amateurs (percentage of body fat , the amount of water, volumes parts of the body, visceral fat and risk of heart disease, bone density, body weight …). Scanners can be based on the parameters and frequency of physical activity, envisages very precise level of progress and the time for which they can achieve set goals. Very accurate results and capture using micro cameras can help professional athletes: for muscle imbalances, for recovery, higher precision in performing a given movement, and improving the techniques involved.

Poseban utisak je ostavila kompanija BOTSPOT sa svojim OPTAone modelom koji ima mogućnost da u komori snima objekte od najsitnijih do veoma velikih dimenzija (min 80 x 80 x 80 mms do max 2200 x 1200 x 1200 mms), rezolucija max 16k, vreme skeniranja  0,01 sec, 64 senzora, 2 x 32 po 20,4 MPS sa 30 x optičkim zumom. Cela konstrukcija košta oko 150.000 evra i statična je tako da sportisti nakon testa naprezanja u roku od 15ak minuta dolaze na skeniranje u prostoriju gde je skener smešten. Na slici možete pogledati kako skener izgleda.

A special impression left a company BOTSPOT with OPTAone model that has the ability to shoot subjects in the chamber from the smallest to the very large size (80 x 80 min x 80 mms max 2200 x 1200 x 1200 mms), 16k max resolution, scan time 0, 01 sec, 64 sensors, 2 x 32 to 20.4 MPS with 30 x optical zoom. The entire construction will cost about 150,000 euros, platform is static so athletes after test within 15 minutes come to scan room. On the picture you can see how a scanner looks.

Zaključak je da je 3D Body Scanning budućnost, da će se sve više i više primenjivati u raznim oblastima a posebno u Zdravlju, Fitnesu i Sportu. Ove tehnologije iz dana u dan rastu i razvijaju se i pretenduju da postanu deo svakodnevnih naših aktivnosti. Lakše ćemo doći do cilja ako preciznije znamo šta i kako treba da radimo!

The conclusion is that the 3D Body Scanning is future, it will be more and more applied in various fields especially in health, fitness and sports. These technologies day by day grow and develop and aspire to become part of our everyday activities. It helps to reach our goal if you know precisely what to do and how to do!

ST. MORITZ – TOP OF THE WORLD

St. Moritz je odmaralište u dolini Engadine u Švajcarskoj. To je opština u okrugu Maloja u Švajcarskom kantonu Graubunden. Najviši vrh u istočnim Alpima, Piz Bernina, leži južno od grada nekoliko kilometara. Moritz je bio domaćin zimskih olimpijskih igara 1928. i 1948. godine. To je popularna destinacija za visoke klase i međunarodni dzet set, kao i jedan od najskupljih skijališta na svetu. Takođe je bio domaćin 1934. 1974. i 2003. za skijaški svetski kup, i predstojeći 2017.

St. Moritz is a resort in the Engadine valley in Switzerland. It is a municipality in the district of Maloja in the Swiss canton of Graubunden. The highest peak in the eastern Alps, the Piz Bernina, lies south of the city a few kilometers. Moritz hosted the Winter Olympics in 1928. and 1948. It is a popular destination for high class and international jet set, as well as one of the most expensive ski slopes in the world. He also hosted at 1934. 1974. and 2003. the ski world cup, and the upcoming 2017.

To je jedan od tri grada koji su bili domaćini zimskih olimpijskih igara dva puta, ostali su Innsbruck – Austrija i Lake Placid – New York u Sjedinjenim Američkim Državama. Pored toga on je bio domaćin FIBT Svetskom prvenstvu (Bob i skeleton Racing) . St. Mortz je izuzetno popularan u letnjim mesecima kao centar za visinske pripreme profesionalnih sportista, posebno biciklista i trkača. Njegova popularnost zasniva se na nadmorskoj visini, na dobrom vremenu (oko 300 sunčanih dana godišnje) , posedovanju atletske staze , jezeru, koje zimi kada se zamrzne služi kao staza za nordisko skijanje i polo sport. Pored navedenih sportova, St. Moritz je poznat i kao destinacija za jedrenje leti.

It is one of three cities that have hosted the Winter Olympics twice, remained Innsbruck – Austria and Lake Placid – New York in the United States. In addition he hosted the FIBT World Championships (Bob and Skeleton Racing). St. Mortz is extremely popular in the summer months as a center for altitude training professional athletes, especially cyclists and runners. Its popularity is based on the altitude, the good weather (about 300 sunny days per year), possession of an athletic track, that winter when the lake is frozen serve as a trail for Nordic skiing and polo sport. In addition to these sports, St. Moritz is also known as a destination for sailing and flying.

Ovaj region poseduje 350 km skijaških staza. Gornji Engadin je zaista poseban sa obiljem sunca. Zahvaljujući nadmorskoj visini od 1.800 do 3.303 metara iznad nivoa mora, sneg je zagarantovan. I šta više , ovde se nalaze moderne žičare koje obezbeđuju minimalno vreme čekanja. Ovde je zimski turizam rođen pre skoro 150 godina. Planinski lanci, freeride padine, snežni parkovi za extremne sportove, prostrane staze predstavljaju velike izazove za ljubitelje zimskih sportova. Na jednom delu planine nalazi se i specijalno pripremljena veleslalom Audi Word Cup staza sa kapijama, radarom za brzinu i satovima za merenje vremena, koju mogu da koriste i rekreativni skijaši kao adrenalinski izazov. Centri Corviglia, Corvatsch i Diavolezza su sinonim i izazivaju strahopoštovanje i za iskusne skijaše. Može se naći skoro sve u švajcarskom najvećem SNOW SPORT regionu, od poznatih područija sa širokim spektrom ponuda do manjih mirnijih porodicnih seoskih krajeva. Ne zaboravljajući brojne panorama restorane, ski kolibe i snow barove, sve pršti od ambijenta žive planinske zabave.

The region has 350 km of ski trails. Upper Engadine is truly special with plenty of sun. Thanks to an altitude of 1,800 to 3,303 meters above sea level, snow is guaranteed. And what’s more, here are highly modern lifts which provide a minimum waiting time. Here is winter tourism was born almost 150 years ago. Mountain ranges, freeride slopes, snow park for extreme sports, spacious paths of the great challenges for winter sports enthusiasts. On one part of the mountain, there is a specially prepared giant Audi Word Cup trail with gates and clocks for measuring time, which can be used by ordinary skiers as adrenaline challenge. Centers Corviglia, Corvatsch and Diavolezza  awe-inspiring also for experienced skiers. One can find almost everything in the biggest Swiss SNOW SPORT region of the known areas with a wide range of offers to smaller rural family ski lift. Not forgetting the numerous panorama restaurants, ski huts and snow bars, all the fingers of the living environment of mountain fun.

Uređenost staza, ski žičare, ski mape, kultura na ski stazama ostavljaju jak i pozitivan utisak na svakog skijaša. Zato se sa razlogom može reći da je ovo jedan od najboljih ski centara na svetu ako ne i najbolji. Kao iskusnom skijašu i instruktoru veoma impresivno mi je bilo videti sve te odlicno tehnički obučene skijaše od 7 do 77 godina, što se može i očekivati od švajcarske nacije koja je sa razlogom jedna od najtrofejnijih na svetu, kada se govori o zimskim sportovima.

Tidiness trails, ski lifts, ski maps, culture on the ski slopes are really left a strong and positive impression on me. So can reasonably be said that this is one of the best ski resorts in the world maybe the best. As an experienced skier and instructor very impressive to me was to see all these great technically trained skiers from 7 to 77 years, as can be expected from the nation of Switzerland, which is also a reason one of the most successful nations in the world as for winter sports.
