Bodypass project aims to break barriers between health sector and consumer goods sector and eliminate the current data silos. As the Head of Innovation in International Markets of IBV, Rosa Porcar, pointed out, ‘BodyPass will help to foster product and service design due to 3D technology implementation’.

For this reason, BodyPass will adapt and create tools that allow a secure exchange of information completely anonymous between data and designers and researchers.

‘This 3D information of the human body helps to design more ergonomic workplaces, safer means of transport as well as to improve the service of products online commerce".
