If you’re in the business of developing performance wear or protective apparel for women; a lab that does testing of these products; or a government or university research institute that establishes worker safety guidelines, we would like to introduce you to the newest member of our thermal manikin family—Liz. Incorporating a female manikin into your testing regimen means performance wear designed for women can now be tested on a female form, generating more realistic garment properties and thermal comfort data more applicable to the actual end-user.
Based on input directly from our customers, and with a clear understanding of their needs, Thermetrics engineers designed the Liz thermal manikin using 3D CAD modeling processes and actual female body scans for realistic morphology. Her precision thermoregulation and sweating systems are based on proven technologies from our widely used Newton manikin. All Liz manikin systems include:
*Our standard 30-zone model has been optimized for garment and environmental testing needs, but Liz can also be customized for pretty much any application you can dream up. This could include different manikin support or cable connections, alternate segmentation, wider operating range, additional sensors, or whatever else your research might need.
Contact us today to place an order or to let us know if you’re interested in renting a female manikin system. Also, visit the blog to see how Nike's using Liz at the LeBron James Innovation Center. We don’t have Liz in our rental program yet, but once there is enough interest we can make that happen!
