Body Volume Indicator (BVI)

Select Research Ltd, a pioneer company in 3D measurement, developed BVI 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 calculate weight distribution and body composition from a smartphone.

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 technology focuses on the individuals shape so that body volume and composition can be analyzed for each segment.

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