Designing individualized medical devices requires the collection of anthropometric data from the patient. This can be done by using the 3D scanning process. Despite many advantages, it has significant drawbacks, limiting the suitability of its use for many types of medical devices. This paper presents the design of measuring station that allows to increase the quality of anthropometric data obtained in the scanning process of humans limbs. Accuracy and repeatability of data obtained on the station is presented and compared to reference scans. What's more, thanks to the automatisation of certain activities in the scanning process, operating the device requires the operator to have much lower competencies and workload.
