Abstract. Nowadays people with foresight prepare themselves in case of sub-health and ageing problems, pay increasing attentions to healthcare. Comparing with taking chemical medicine, physical treatment and rehabilitation may have less concern of side effect for some diseases. The daily wearing clothing is like the second skin of the human body, which may play an important role of medicine in the near future as the fast developments of wearable functional products and applications. For functional clothing developers, when the clothing acts as medicine, accurate, specified and individualized fashion design process should adopted as applying medicine according to individuals' indications. The matching techniques should be considered throughout the whole developing cycle, such as fashion design, pattern design, garment manufacturing, fitting and revisions. A 3D digital functional human models conveying physiological features of each individual is necessary which can visualize and quantify the function design steps from diagnose to functional clothing development.
