A MATLAB computer program has been written to enable improved (relative to an older program) modeling of a human body for purposes of designing space suits and other hardware with which an astronaut must interact. The older program implements a kinematic model based on traditional anthropometric measurements that do provide important volume and surface information. The present program generates a three-dimensional (3D) whole-body model from 3D body-scan data. The program utilizes thin-plate spline theory to reposition the model without need for additional scans.

This program was written by Renee Rogge of Mercer University for Johnson Space Center. For further information, contact the Johnson Commercial Technology Office at (281) 483-3809. MSC-24040-1
