A 3D head and face scan data can be usefully applied in the ergonomic design of a wearable product such as an oxygen mask or a virtual reality (VR) headset to support the safety as well as comfort for a certain amount of a target population. This study is aimed to develop analysis and design methods of an ergonomic facial wearable products (e.g., pilot oxygen mask, VR headsets) based on numerous 3D face scan data (366 faces and 2,299 heads) through the template registration and the finite element (FE) analysis methods to predict the contact pressure between the face and a product. The application of the FE analysis on numerous 3D images to find an optimal form of a product is a novel approach in product design. The proposed methods on contact pressure analysis could be usefully applied for wearable products, which fit body parts.
