What is the correct pose for consistent scanning?

The Styku scanner does a great job of measuring the body when scans are performed correctly. Here are instructions about how to get into position when scanning.

Step 1 : Make sure the turntable arrow is pointed at the sensor tower.

  • You can adjust the turntable position using the Styku software. Learn how here:

Step 2 : Stand on the footprints on the turntable, facing the sensor tower.

Step 3 : Raise your arms until your hands are level with your shoulders, and close your fingers into fists. This is called a "T Pose". Feel your body straighten, and your shoulders lift.

Step 4 : Now, lower your arms until they are about 8 inches (20 cm) away from your torso. This is called an "A Pose". The software will display digital "wings" showing where the correct position should be. You want your arms to be in the lower green area.

Step 5 : Remain still during the scan. The turntable will rotate more than a full rotation. Stay relaxed, and breathe normally.
