Body Volume Indicator (BVI)

BVI America LLC, a subsidiary of Select Research Ltd, a pioneer company in 3D measurement, developed the BVI Pro app and BVI Image API as part of a 10-year collaborative development with the Mayo Clinic and other global partners. BVI technology represents the world’s first dedicated 3D measurement tool designed to measure weight distribution and body composition.

Measuring body volume using a 3D image is patented technology in the U.S and all 28 countries of the EU. Dividing the body shape into seven segments, BVI Pro focuses on the individuals shape so that body volume and composition can be analyzed for each segment.

Using our patented 3D body volume imaging technology, BVI Pro calculates health risk factors associated with body weight and fat distribution, providing a deeper insight into individual body health and fitness.

BVI data from the BVI Pro app and BVI API can be collected anywhere using a smartphone with internet connection. Using the app is easy, you only need to take 2 photos and add some demographic data to attain your BVI measurement.  

The best way to track your health and fitness.

Download the BVI Pro app on an iPad or iPhone. 

The measurement of total volume of body fat and visceral fat is obtained by combining a person’s 3D shape with data on height, weight, age, gender and level of fitness.

Take two photos using the view finder, one front on and one from the side to develop a 3D image.

The Body Volume Indicator (BVI) number will provide a new and unique insight into your health without requiring any additional hardware.
