The SYMCAD II Master Tailor Takes Measurements In One Instant Of Fun

CHICAGO — May 5, 2011 — Having taken the measurements of over a million people inside institutions and clothed them, TELMAT now releases the SYMCAD II, an unprecedented innovation in the measurement of the human body. Very easy to use, SYMCAD II provides boutiques and clothing store chains with an automated body measurement system that can determine clothing sizes and help produce made-to-measure clothes.

SYMCAD II helps provide made-to-measure comfort and elegance for the cost of ready-to-wear. SYMCAD II is a free-standing private booth and scanning system that is  simple, autonomous and fun. Featuring automatic body positioning control, as well as a synthetic voice system that welcomes the customer into the booth, helps them find the ideal position, and then automatically triggers the measurement process. The person is inside a pleasant environment and a fun setting throughout.

This system is ultra-fast and accurate. It takes less than a minute for the equipment to start up. The cycle includes an automatic scope calibration for measurement, totally free of any human intervention, with an acquisition time of 0.5 seconds for the entire human body. SYMCAD II is unequalled on the market. More than 110 measurements are completed and available within 30 seconds.

Comfortable and fully preserving personal intimacy, SYMCAD II features an exceptional spectrum of measurement, impervious to undergarment color or skin pigmentation. That is yet another SYMCAD II functionality unmatched on the market.

The realistic reconstruction of the human body and the software suite make it possible to collect any kind of special measurement. Measurements are automatically taken from characteristic body features. All measurements are based on raw data from the subject, free of any smoothing or data manipulation.

SYMCAD II benefits are many. It obviously makes it possible to provide clothing that is perfectly adapted to the person's morphology, without alteration. Its automation promotes improved hygiene and privacy by limiting the fittings with personnel to the bare minimum. Shops can also thus manage a morphological database that will help optimize stocks and customer loyalty. Retail chains can enjoy an identical measurement tool in all their shops.
