Measurement Dummies of Standard Japanese Body / Natural Nude Body for Draping

From 1992 to 1995, the Research Institute of Human Engendering for Quality Life (an abbreviated title: HQL) had carried out a research regarding the human body measurements based on 178 different provisions of 34000 research candidates from many different regions in Japan. They were then committed to creating statues, based on the research data they gained, as well as the following 3 factors - the mean value of each human body part, anatomical knowledge, and aesthetic sense. As a result, the Measurement Dummies of Standard Japanese Body has been launched as a joint development with HQL and Nanasai. Also, the Natural Nude Body for Draping has been created through the careful consideration of the natural figure without foundation garment and natural posture, which are both based on the Measurement Dummies of Standard Japanese Body.

The development of the Measurement Dummies of Standard Japanese Body has made us possible to gain the accurate knowledge of standard human body balance and measurement, and that is why it can be a so-called ‘ruler for standard human body’.
