Struggle to find clothes that actually fit you? Want to have more comfortable seats in your car?

Please join us for an anthropometric study seeking to collect demographic and body measurement data for improving the design and development of apparels, vehicles, and many other products. This project is a part of the Size North America Project, or SizeNA, and K-State is the only Midwest station of SizeNA.

If you are between the ages of 6 and 75 and able to stand still for five minutes, you are needed. However, we have already met our quota for non-Hispanic white participants in the age group 18-65. The study includes a questionnaire that will take about 10 minutes and an on-site visit for 3-D body scanning for about 20 minutes. Upon completion, each participant will receive a $20 gift card.

Please visit www.sizenorthamerica.com to schedule an appointment and fill out the questionnaire by May 28. The 3-D body scanning session is on campus in 251 Justin Hall, 1324 Lovers Lane.

Should you have any question, please contact Yingying Wu, assistant professor of apparel, textiles, and interior design, at yingyingwu9@k-state.edu. This study has been reviewed by the Institutional Review Board and received approval No. 9082.
