Human Solutions to present motorcycle protective suits - with perfect size & fit

2nd - 4th February 2007 in Helsinki: Human Solutions at the booth of the Finnish sports clothing manufacturer Rukka.

Kaiserslautern, 22nd January 2007 – Human Solutions GmbH of Kaiserslautern will take part in the largest Finnish Motorcycle Fair at the beginning of February 2007 in Helsinki - at the booth of Rukka, the sports clothing manufacturer, trade visitors and motorcycle fans can find out all about motorcycle protective suits that have optimal size & fit.

Dr. Jochen Balzulat, Head of the Body Scanning Division at Human Solutions, explaining the company's presence at this event said, "Our joint appearance with Rucca at this Exhibition can open up new Northern European target groups for us. Rukka manufactures high-grade specialized clothing for discerning motorcyclists - at their booth, we will demonstrate to visitors how an absolutely perfect fit in protective clothing can be achieved by means of our 3D Body Scanner. Rukka has delivered suits to Police Force in England, Civil Police in Germany and to different institutions e.g. ADAC und Bayrisches Rote Kreuz in Germany - so we will also be taking our XFIT clothing software to Finland. XFIT is a proven solution for the cost-effective determination of uniformed personnel requirements – drastically reducing outfitting and warehousing costs. The Helsinki Exhibition will give us the opportunity to address end customers for tailored motorcycle garments - and to introduce out product portfolio to the police, the armed forces and other Scandinavian organizations."

Rukka and Human Solutions will be presenting jackets and pants in the Armadillo range for men and in the Armarina range for female motorcyclists. Rukka's partner CENTRIA already uses a Human Solutions body scanner and acted as mutual contact for the Rukka/Human Solutions joint exhibition appearance in February - a well-known Finnish research institute, CENTRIA’s research spectrum also encompasses the apparel industry.

Dr. Balzulat: "The Motorcycle Exhibition in Finland has long been a crowd-puller - last year over 67,000 visitors were recorded. We will be most interested to see just how our various solutions are received by the experts, the media and of course by the motorcyclists themselves."
