The size and shape of elite athletes are recognised to be impacted by the sport in which they compete. This research seeks to determine how different female sporting bodies differ to a control non-sporting population and how this affects their clothing choices.
The research involves being scanned using our state of the art TC2 NX16 light scanner to determine size, shape and proportion, then answering a short questionnaire relating to sport participation and experiences of clothing fit.
Participants will be provided with a print out detailing their dimensions and can have their body shape determined.
Further details can be found in the following article Manchester Evening News.
We require female volunteers aged 18-30 who participate in sport for more than 8 hours per week and have been involved in sport for at least 3 years.
Scan sessions take place in the Hollings campus of MMU (http://www.mmu.ac.uk/travel/hollings)
The next scheduled sessions are happening in July
