Toddler 3D Body Shape study

18 February 2019

We are looking to create age-specific 3D models of toddlers in the UK.

Research has shown that body weight tracks from infancy into adulthood. This means that heavier children may be at a higher risk of weight problems later in life.

We are scanning 2-3-year-old toddlers at the UNIVERSITY OF LINCOLN campus to develop body image scales that will be used to train GPs to easily spot at-risk toddlers to promote positive conversations.
