The Factors of Somatotype Characteristics of Obese Preteen Boys to Develop the Theory of Personalized Patterning for Mass Customization
최경미 Choi Keung-mi , 류영실 Ryu Young-sil
This study aimed to develop the designing theory of personalized patterns for mass customization targeting obese preteen boys in the direct measurement data of the 6th Size Korea Survey. In the analyses of a total of 1,188 preteen boys with obesity to those of normal ones, the somatotype characteristics which may have significant influence on patterning were extracted using three analytical parameters: anthropometric measurements, height index and waist circumference index. The results of this study were summarized as follows: 1. Analyses of any differences in the group mean and Z-score between the two groups showed that the obese boys developed more remarkably in both the vertical and horizontal directions compared to normal ones. They could be characterized by fast growth, significant horizontal development and noticeable abdominal development. The result of analyses with height index and waist circumference index shown the abdominal region developing relatively compared to the other regions and the proportional development in the direction of thickness rather than width. 2. The results of a factor analysis with anthropometric measurements explained Vertical size and horizontal size factors at least 70% of the body composition factors. 3. The results of a factor analysis with height index showed that five factors including the horizontal proportion of the shoulders, the upper length of the posterior trunk, the body flatness ratio of the upper trunk, the horizontal proportion of the shoulders, and the proportion of crotch length were extracted in obese somatotype, explaining 78.66% of the total variance. 4. The results of a factor analysis with waist circumference index showed that two factors including the horizontal proportion of the extremities & chest and the degree of the abdominal protrusion were extracted in obese somatotype group, explaining 79.28% of the total variance.
