HUMAN SHAPES

REALISTIC HUMAN BODY SHAPE MODELER BASED ON REAL DATA
Developed by University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute


Online Statistical Body Shape Models
 

UMTRI has developed a range of statistical body shape models.
Click the figures below to interact with the models.

Standing Child
Model

Generate body shapes of standing children ages 3 to 11 years old

Seated Child
Model

Generate seated body shapes of children ages 3 to 11 years old

Seated Adult
Model

Generate body shapes of seated male/female adults ages 20 to 90 years old

Seated Toddler
Model

Generate seated toddler body shapes using torso length and weight

ABOUT OUR MODELS
 
Features

Manipulate Shape

Change the body shape by intuitively adjusting a few predictors such as stature, BMI, ratio of erect sitting height to stature. Slide the bars or input values to change.

Export Shape

Save the chosen body shape into your local depository in a standard 3D mesh format (STL).

Anthropometry

The models feature predicting standard anthropometric values and anatomical landmark points of the chosen body shape.
