Abstract

In this narrative review several articles that explain the application of 3D Body Scanner were analyzed. Among all published articles in the last 10 years only 14 met the inclusion criteria. There are several fields of application of this technology: Body shape and posture analysis, pediatrics, metrical analysis, and forensic medicine. The results indicate that 3D Body Scanner is a promising technology that could help clinicians and researchers to improve their work both in term of quality and time saving.
