Abstract Background: Close-fitting pressure garments and compression therapy are widely used for both sport and medical applications. These garments are constructed to have a negative fit where the size of the garment is smaller than the size of the body over which they are fitted. Due to this, these types of garments generate pressure on the underlying tissue of the human body. The degree and the distribution of the negative fit in such garments are of the utmost importance to ensure that the intended correct amount of pressure is generated by them. Aim: This research aims to develop a lower body 3D Body Scanning Measurement Method as applicable to garments with negative fit for sport and medical applications. Methods: New measuring methods both manual and with utilization of 3D Body scanning were developed with modifications to the Measurement Extraction Profile made to facilitate the body measurement at points of critical importance for the required application. Customised measurements were extracted and used for the evaluation of the garment performance or garment engineering. The developed method is validated on a representative sample of human subjects both male and female. Results and Conclusions: It is concluded that the Developed Method and 3D Scanning Protocol can be successfully used for lower body compression garments engineering and the calculation of the predictive pressure generated by these garments on the underlying human limbs. In addition, the protocol can be used for the generation of the true to scale body models and avatars.
