Abstract: To improve the fit of head worn products for Chinese adults, this study utilized the principal component analysis (PCA) panel on 15 facial measurements extracted from 3,358 3D Chinese adult head scans. The PCA panel covers 95.80% of Chinese population. All samples were divided into 5 size categories based on the differences among eye and facial morphology, and 3D reference headforms were developed respectively based on the statistics of these measurements. The headforms can be used for head-worn products like eyewear, VR headsets, eye and face PPE and etc.
