Ergonomic Fit for Uniforms and Workwear

Presented Thursday, February 18, 2021
Presenter, Dr. Jan Beringer, Hohenstein

Developing the right fit for different body shapes, especially during movement, is one of the greatest challenges for apparel. Ill-fitting workwear can restrict range of motion, lower productivity and cause injury. Hohenstein uses 3D and 4D scanning to measure body shapes of a target group during predicted motions.

Then, using analysis of how movement affects fit - and how fit affects movement - patterns and measurement tables are optimized to efficiently cover the entire target group.

Learn how to improve workwear with relevant data, improved digital or traditional design processes and clear manufacturing instructions.


Dr. Jan Beringer serves as the Senior Scientific Expert for Hohenstein.
In this role, he uses his extensive knowledge to lead the development of clothing physiology, fit and workmanship of garments, functionalization of fabrics, textile UV protection and textile reprocessing. He has extensive knowledge in textile and fiber chemistry, functionalization, nanotechnology, coating and finishing and clothing physiology. Dr. Beringer holds a Doctorate in Natural Sciences in Chemistry with a focus on Textile and Fiber Chemistry from the University of Stuttgart.
