3D Scanning can reach even the most niche places like the Fitness industry.

Whether you’re just starting out on your fitness journey or changing up your fitness goals, the 3D Scanner is the ideal companion for measuring your circumference, form, posture, and body composition. 

You can now ditch your scales; instead, let 3D Scanner handle it for you.

But how though?


How Does 3D Scanning Aid the Fitness Industry?

Fitness gyms now provide high-tech 3D body scanner to assist in measuring your progress if you wish to lose weight and become in shape.

Here are the importance of body scanners:


  1. Visual aid

These machines’ 3D avatars provide people with a visual reference to utilize while tracking their development.

You can see where you have improved and where you may be trailing more easily in the scan than you can in the mirror. This technology enables you to be more aware of how you are performing and what you can do to improve!

Weight scales can mislead you into believing you’re not making any progress. Nothing is more illustrative and inspiring than witnessing your body transform.


  1. Additional measurements

It is typically simple to determine your own height or weight. While doing so, our body scanners can also calculate your arm, thigh, waist, and breast dimensions, as well as your body fat percentage. This gives you a clear picture of where you are in your journey.


  1. Accountability

Above all, a 3D body scan serves as a last line of defense. 

Seeing your progress, or lack thereof, through the scanner is a powerful motivator for people. It might be difficult to find someone (or anything) other than yourself to assist you to keep to your objectives if you do not work with a personal trainer. 

The scanner itself reminds you of your goals and shows you how near or distant you are from reaching them by displaying your results within the scanner.


Why does this breakthrough matter?

Understanding and recording human body size and shape has long been done with tools like tapes, calipers, and stadiometers.

Anthropometry (the measurement of the human body) may now be done with three-dimensional body scanners. Body scanners, rather than collecting hand measurements, can capture a high-resolution 3D picture of the body in a matter of seconds.

Keeping good health is important during the pandemic.

A new research of almost 200,000 children shows that throughout the pandemic’s extended months of stay-at-home orders and limited activities, American youngsters gained weight.

According to the study, this resulted in an increase in the number of obese or overweight children and adolescents.

“Childhood obesity has long been a major health concern and our findings suggest that the pandemic may have compounded this problem,” said one of the lead authors Susan Woolford, M.D. ,M.P.H., a child obesity expert and pediatrician at University of Michigan Health C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and researcher with the Susan B. Meister Child Health Evaluation and Research Center.

“We know that excess weight gain during childhood is difficult to reverse and often has long term consequences.”

Obesity is defined as having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above. It increases your chances of developing disorders such as:

  • Heart disease and stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Some cancers
  • Gallbladder disease and gallstones
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout
  • Breathing problems, such as sleep apnea (when a person stops breathing for short episodes during sleep) and asthma

Not everyone who is obese has these problems. The risk rises if you have a family history of one of those conditions.

Also, where your weight is may matter. If it’s mostly around your stomach (the “apple” shape), that may be riskier than if you have a “pear” shape, meaning that your extra weight is mostly around your hips and buttocks

Nicholas Trosko, the director of sales and strategic accounts at Fit3D, Inc., stated, “3D body scanning can be an incredible value addition to any personal training department,”

This fitness technology can assist in removing the element of pain from early personal training sessions, allowing trainers to comfortably get right into talks with clients about their goals. 

“Personal trainers may assist members assess their present level of fitness and health, then create a fair and quantifiable timeframe for their success,”  Johnny Delavaldene, the CEO of Cowboys Fit, explained. “The time spent analyzing fitness levels helps the trainer establish connection and trust with the customer.”

3D body scanning will deliver tangible results, which the trainer can use to create actionable steps for the client. “Fitness managers and trainers can use this powerful tool to generate leads, create uniformity through the sales process and create a complete vision of success for members and prospects.


What else can 3D scanning do for the medical industry?

3D scanning provides doctors with an accurate image of their patient and allows them to thoroughly research alternative treatments without personally testing them on the patient. They can see inside a patient’s body with this technology. 

No other technology has ever provided doctors with such a detailed glimpse inside their patients’ bodies. 3D scanners can also be portable and extremely rapid, which may sometimes mean the difference between life and death for the injured.

Here are the benefits of 3D scanning to the sector:

  • Helps doctors conduct and create safer procedures for injured people
  • Faster diagnosis
  • Helps them provide them with the medical assistance they need.
  • High level of customization
  • 3D printed models
